Example Question #1 : Edges And Vertices
How many edges and vertices are found on a square pyramid?
The base of a square pyramid is, as the name suggests, a square which has edges and vertices. The vertices of the square each have edges that meet at a single point, adding an additional vertex and additional edges. Together, a square pyramid has edges and vertices.
Example Question #2 : Edges And Vertices
How many vertices does an octagonal pyramid have?
An octagonal pyramid has a base with eight vertices, each of which is a vertex of the pyramid. There is one more vertex, or the apex, which is connected to each of the vertices of the base by an edge. Nine is the correct choice.
