yes it does

The greatest number of sides can be any amount of sides.

it is 4 sides and i am only in 4th grade

It is three times the number of sides on a base of the prism.

4

A right trapezoidal prism has 12 sides. Any prism has three times the number of sides of its cross-sectional shape. A trapezoid has four sides, so a [right] trapezoidal prism has 3 x 4 = 12 sides.

5 sides.

The base has three sides.

A prism is any 3 dimensional geometric object with parallel bases which are congruent polygons. The lateral faces of a prism are parallelograms. We generally talk of an n-sided prism where n is a natural number telling us the number of sides the prism has. To be more precise an prism is a polyhedron with two congruent polygonal faces and all the remaining faces are parallelograms. A cube is a common example of a prism. It has six sides. A triangular prism has 5 sides. So the answer to the questions : how many sides does a prism have? is it all depends on the prism, it can have different number of sides. Now a pyramid is also a 3 dimensional shape but instead of two bases it has one base connected to a point called the apex. The base of a prism is a polygon and a prism is a polyhedron also. It can have different number of sides also so there is once again no fixed answer.

Edges = 3 x number of sides in end of prism For example, a hexagonal prism would have 3 x 6 = 18 edges since there are 6 sides to a hexagon.

No, A prism is a 3D shape with 2 bases and multiple sides that connect to both bases like cubes, but balls are usually smooth (or have multiple faces like a soccer ball).

It's three times the number of sides of the base.
