A pyramid does not need to have any equal sides. A REGULAR pyramid has as many equal sides as the number of sides on the base. So, a triangular pyramid (tetrahedron) will have 3 equal faces, a square based pyramid will have 4, etc.

A rectangular pyramid has five sides

it has 80 that is the answer

divide it by how many sides it has

A pyramid has one more corner and faces than the number of sides in its base; thus a decagonal pyramid has 10 + 1 = 11 faces and corners. A pyramid has twice as many edges as sides in its base; thus a decagonal pyramid has 2 X 10 = 20 edges.

4 faces. The number of faces on a pyramid is one more than the number of sides of the base. A triangle has 3 sides, therefore a triangular pyramid has 3 +1 = 4 faces.

A pyramid is a generic term, used to describe a three dimensional shape with a polygonal base and triangular sides that meet at an apex above the base. The base can be a polygon with any number of sides and the number of faces, edges and vertices of a pyramid depend on this number of sides. If the base is an n-sided polygon, then the pyramid has 2n edges.

A pyramid can have an infinite number of sides other than two. If it has one (or an infinite number of) side(s), it is considered a cone. If it is, for example, a hexagonal pyramid, it will have six sides. A triangle-based pyramid has three sides. A square-based pyramid, commonly the structure used by ancient Egyptians, has four sides. There can be pentagonal pyramids, hexagonal pyramids and so on.
