# Does a right circular conehave a triangular as a base?

The answer is "No"; a right circular cone has a circle as its base while a right triangular cone has a triangular base (which we usually call a "pyramid".

The Egyptian Pyramids have square bases.

And the volume of any "right" pyramid is found by multiplying the area of its base by its VERTICAL height.

## Related Questions because the cylinder has a circular base and a triangular prism has a triangular base so they are both basic shapes. Strictly, if it has a circular base, it is a circular cylinder. Otherwise, it could have an oval base. If the long axis is at right angles (perpendicular) to the plane of the base, then it is a right circular cylinder. Cones have a circular base and a triangle prism has a triangular base A right circular cone is perfectly balanced on its circular base. Imagine a cone that has a circular base, but leans to one side - this is a non right circular cone. A Right Circular Cone is one wherein the base of the cone is circular and the axis of the cone is perpendicular to the base and passes through the center of the base and the vertex of the cone. In a right circular cone a line from the vertex to the center of the circular base is perpendicular to the base. In an oblique circular cone that same line will not be perpendicular.  In a right circular cone the apex is directly above the centre of the base. the triforce All triangular pyramids, also called tetrahedrons, have a triangular base. All triangular antiprisms, also called octahedrons, have a triangular base. All triangular prisms have a triangular base. A triangular prism can have a square or triangular base. A prism. A prism is named for its base, eg a triangular prism has a triangle for the base. If the base is a circle, the circular prism is called a cylinder.    both a cone and a pyramid have a base with one side that comes up to a point the base, however, is the difference a cone has a circular or round base when a pyramid has a triangular, square, or nonround base It is false. If it has a triangle as its base it would be a pyramid. A triangular prism can have a square or triangular base, but faces are normally triangles. (I think) A right circular cone with a base radius of 3 ft and a height of 9 ft has a volume of: 84.8 cubic feet. Pyramids are classified by the shape of their base. A triangular pyramid has a triangular base and three triangular side faces. A square pyramid has a square base and four triangular sides.
