A cone is a 3D shape that has 1 face, 1 vertices, and 0 edges and 2 examples are a ice cream cone, a traffic cone and a birthday cap

The intersection of the cone and that particular plane is a parabola.

pyramids have a triangular base. As a triangle has three sides, the pyramid will have three sides. Although you can get square based pyramids which have four sides. ---------------------------------------------- The Egyptian pyramids are 4 sided not 3 sided.

The top of a cone, seen from the outside of the cone, is called the vertex, also referred to as the externalpoint.The vertex is the point of intersection of the lines, or generators, of the cone and the plane base, in this case a circle. But if you just call it the point, everyone will know what you mean.This is referring to what we all think of when we hear the term, cone: a right circular cone. There are other types of cone, but probably not of interest here.

Cones have curved lateral surface, pyramids don't.

Not alike

Both cones and pyramids have one base and they all have a vertex, or they all come to a point. That is what makes them alike. What make them different is that a cone has one curved edge at its base, and a pyramid has 6 to 8 edges which is not curved
