It depends! A pyramid can have any number of faces, in the same way that a shape can be of any size and can have any number of sides. The most basic pyramids usually have 5 faces.
Square-based pyramids have 5 faces, and triangular-based pyramids have 4 faces.

Mathematically, a pyramid is a 3-dimensional shape formed by a polygonal base with n sides, and n triangular faces meeting at an apex - which is a point not in the plane of the base. It therefore has n+1 faces, where n is the number of sides of the polgonal base.

Common pyramids have a triangular base (4 faces) or square base (5 faces).
