A solid cannot be bounded by one polygon. A solid bounded by polygons is called a polyhedron.

A pyramid, as well as any other solid figure bounded by plane polygons or faces, is a polyhedron.

A polygon is a plane (2-dimensional) object bounded by straight lines. A polyhedron (not polyhendron!) is a solid (3-dimensional) object bounded by polygonal faces. So, pyramids and some prisms are polyhedra. A cylinder is a type of prism but, because two of its faces are circular, those faces are not polygons. As a result a cylinder is not a polyhedron.

The faces of Platonic solids are regular polygons...

Its a platonic solid :)

No. A polygon is a plane area bounded by straight lines. The key term in this context is "plane". It is, therefore, 2 -dimensional shape. A solid, which is bounded by faces that are polygons, is called a polyhedron (plural = polyhedra).

A pyramid, as well as any other solid figure bounded by plane polygons or faces, is a polyhedron.

A polyhedron is a solid object bounded by polygons. Polygons are plane shapes [bounded by straight lines]. The curved surface of a cone is not a polygon and so the cone is not bounded by polygons and therefore, a cone is not a polyhedron.

They are called faces of the polyhedron.

They are faces the polyhedron.

A polyhedron is a generic term to describe a closed 3-dimensional (solid) shape that is bounded by polygons. It can have 4 or more faces - any number.
