Anything that you can pick up is a three dimensional shape. They are shapes that have a length, breadth and height.

No, a cuboid has 8 sides * * * * * That is not correct. A cuboid also has six faces. A cuboid is made up of three pairs of congruent rectangles - in the shape of a brick. The relationship between a cube and a cuboid is the 3-dimensional equivalent of the relationship between a square and a rectangle in 2-d.

There is no specific name. The resulting shape depends on the relative sizes and shapes of the original gemetric shapes and how they are used to "make up" a shape. For example, two rectangles can make up one rectangles, a hexagon, a heptagon, an octagon, a nonagon, a dodecagon, a triskaidecagon (13) or a hexadecagon (16). There may be others. Using more shapes or more complicated ones will greatly increase the number of possible outcomes. Furthermore, there is no reason to be restricted to polygons.

I assume you mean the calculation required. Split the irregular shape up into shapes for which you can find the area (eg rectangles, triangles), then the area of the shape is the sum of the areas of the smaller shapes.

A shape that is made up of two or more shapes is called a composite figure.
