Add together the lengths of all the sides that make up the boundary of the shape. These need not be straight lines.

No not just any shape that has 8 side can be called an octagon. An octagon has straight lines that make up a closed bounded shape.

The usual definition is that the lines should be straight. On "alternative geometries", other definitions may be used. For example, on a sphere, the large circles (the largest you can make, whose center is the center of the sphere) replace straight lines. Note that in this case, the normal parallel axiom is no longer valid.

The simplest answer is a cylinder (although you could squish it a bit to make something slightly different). It has a curved rectangular face, two circular faces, and two curved edges.

Polygons are 2-D shapes that are made of straight lines that make a figure with no openings.

To draw an hourglass, you need a piece of paper. Next you need to draw two vertical lines of the same length. After that, draw the horizontal lines connecting the vertical lines. When that is done, you need to draw two triangles overlapping themselves. Make small curves at the top, middle and bottom. Make the triangles slightly curved, then erase the original triangles. Color in the bottom and top to the three curved lines. You have an hourglass, but to make it more interesting, draw two short straight lines on the top and two small straight lines on the bottom. HOURGLASS!

no it is linear because in order to make a shape you have to use lines even with a circle buts its just one curved line... -Alize Mitchell

You did not specify if these are straight lines. If the lines are straight then no, only 7. If you curve the lines then, yes.
