How many vertices dose a hexagonal pyramid have?
A vertice is defined as where two or more edges meet. A hexagonal pyramid has a hexagon base and six triangular sides, giving seven vertices.
To find the number of vertices on any pyramid, take the number of corners on the base and add 1 (for the top) A hexagonal based pyramid has 7 vertices (6 for the hexagon, 1 for the top) I suspect you might mean "hexagonal prism" though. In which case, for prisms, you double the number of corners in the 2D shape. A hexagonal prism has 12 vertices (6 for the hexagons at each end.)
How many faces vertices and edges does a hexagonal prism oCtagonal prism n-gonal prism triangular pyramid rectangular pyramid pentagonal pyramid hexagonal pyramid n-gonal pyramid?
Name Edges, Faces, Vertices Hexagonal Prism 18, 8, 12 Octagonal Prism 24, 10, 16 A prism with an n-sided base will have 2n vertices, n + 2 faces, and 3n edges. Triangular Pyramid 6, 4, 4 Rectangular Pyramid 8, 5, 5 Pentagonal Pyramid 10, 6, 6 Hexagonal Pyramid 12, 7, 7 A pyramid with an n-sided base will have n + 1 vertices, n + 1 faces, and 2n edges.
An octahedron is the name for a non-specific shape. It could be a di-rectangular pyramid with 6 vertices - this is like two rectangular [or square] based pyramids stuck together base-to-base. Or it could be a heptagonal pyramid, in which case it has 8 vertices. Or it could be a hexagonal prism, in which case it has 12 vertices. There are other octahedraons.
