# How many sides does a star have?

A star does not have a fixed number of sides as a triangle or quadrilateral does. A star may have five points, six points, or ten points. The number of sides is twice the number of points, so a six-pointed star has 12 sides.

a star could have 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, and so on sides but the main star version has a total of 10 sides and 5 vertices

The term "star" can refer to different objects or concepts, so the number of sides a star has depends on the context in which it is being referred to.

In geometry, a "star" typically refers to a polygon with alternating vertices connected by line segments, resulting in a shape that resembles a star. For example, a regular five-pointed star, often referred to as a "pentagram," has five sides.

On the other hand, in astronomy, a "star" refers to a celestial object composed of hot, glowing gases that emit light and heat through nuclear fusion reactions. Stars in astronomy do not have sides in the geometric sense, as they are three-dimensional objects that are not typically described in terms of polygons or sides.

It's important to consider the context and specific meaning of the term "star" in order to determine the number of sides associated with it. In geometry, stars can have different numbers of sides depending on their shape and configuration, while in astronomy, stars are celestial objects that are not typically associated with sides in the geometric sense.

A star is a sphere. So it has two sides ; INSIDE and OUTSIDE.

No! A star is a decagon not a sphere

No! A star has 10 vertices! Not 5!

If its regular star then 5 but if decagonal star then 10 vertices
