What are the names of shapes with different number of sides?
They are called polygons.
Polygonal (2-d) shapes get their (not there) names from the number of sides; polyhedra (3-d) shapes get their names from the number of faces. The names of other shapes: circles, ellipses, torus, cardioid etc have different origins.
A shape is an object with a specific number of sides. Some examples of shapes include circles, squares, triangles, pentagons, and hexagons.
There are infinitely many of them so it is not possible to list their names. If the sides are all straight lines, they are collectively called polygons.
from there sides
Names for shapes that have equal sides are called EQUILATERAL.
Shapes are generally named for the number of sides. While the names are Greek in origin, it is impossible to determine who, if any one person, made the designations.
There is no specific name for such shapes.
You specify shapes by the number of sides (or edges, different name) they have. The suffix -gon at the end of a word show how many sides it has in the words. For example, an octagon has eight sides; so if you see a shape with eight sides, it's an octogon. All shapes are known as polygons, which means it has three or more sides.
All regular polygons (in order of sides starting with 3 sides): triangle, square, pentagon, hexagon, octagon, nonagon, decagon, hendecagon, dodecagon, tridecagon, tetradecagon, pentradecogon, hexadecagon, octadecagon, enneadecagon, icosagon (twenty sides). 2d shapes are shapes that can be drawn on a paper, like lines, triangles, squares, rectangles, circles, etc. Some of these shapes are called polygons, and there are countless numbers of them with their names based on the Greek word for the number of sides on… Read More
All regular polygons with an even number of sides. Irregular polygons with an odd number of sides can have parallel sides. There are also non polygonal shapes that can have parallel sides.
2d shapes that do not have equal sides do not usually have special names.
There is no special name to distinguish shapes with more than 14 sides from those with 14 or fewer.
Equilateral shapes. They can be polygons with any number of sides and, apart from a triangle, they need not be regular.
Regular shapes:all sides and angles are the same Irregular shapes: different angle and sides
There are many different shapes of which each have a different name. Pictures of these shapes cannot be drawn here to answer the question, but the can be described. The most common shapes that are used are squares, circles, and triangles. Squares are a box like shape with four equal sides, a true circle is a perfectly round shape, and the most common triangle shape has along bottom and two shorter sides that come together… Read More
That depends on whether you are talking rough or faceted. The crystalline structure of a rough aquamarine is hexagonal (six sided). After the aquamarine has been shaped and finished, the number of sides is totally dependent on the cut of the stone. Different shapes and styles all have a different number of sides.
There are many such shapes. Any polygon with an even number of sides can have opposite sides that meet the above requirements.
The answer depends on the dimensions of the shape. Plane shapes - flat shapes in 2-dimensional space - will have the same number of vertices as sides. However, that is not the case with solid shapes.
We get all shape names (Polygons) from the greek language.
yes a polygon does have the most number and sides because they have the most number of shapes with the most number of sides
I don't think there can be a shape with less than 3 sides. Or did you mean a name with two sides ??
A shape with three sides is called a triangle. A shape with ten sides is called a decagon.
A square -- has 4 sides a triangle -- has 3 sides A pentagon -- has 5 sides A circle -- has one side
If all the sides are straight lines, then they are known as polygons.
Octagon, dodecagon, myriagon.
That should not surprise you. Here's a thought that might make you more comfortable with it: -- Take a good sized piece of string. Tie the ends together. -- Now you have a big limp loop. Drop it down on the ground. -- How many different shapes can you make out of it ? A square ? A circle ? Different short fat rectangles ? Triangles ? Different long skinny rectangles ? Odd-ball shapes with… Read More
An infinite number. A polygon with any number of sides can be equilateral (ie have sides of equal length).
It depends on the shape. There are different formulae for different shapes.
The names of polygons are: 3: triangle 4: quadrilateral 5: pentagon 6: hexagon 7: heptagon 8: octagon 9: nonagon or enneagon 10: decagon There are, of course, many other shapes with curved sides.
Similar shapes have the same shape,but different size. The corresponding sides are proportional.
Just call it a 250-sided shape, or a 250-sided polygon. It just isn't very useful to find complicated-sounding names for shapes of every number of sides, especially for a large numbers of sides.
Square, rectangle, rhombus, kite and most parrallelagrams
A 6 sided hexagon can have regular sides or irregular sides
There are an unlimited number of 3d shapes. Some of these are called polyhedrons, and their names are from the Greek word for the quantity (number) of faces (sides) on each shape. All faces are exactly the same as each other on regular polyhedrons; one or more faces are different from the other faces on irregular polyhedrons. A few of the countless number of polyhedron names, with the name following the number of faces on… Read More
Yes, in the context of similar shapes.
Some of the basic 3D shapes are: sphere cube cuboid cylinder rectangular prism triangular prism hexagonal prism cone square-based pyramid triangular-based pyramid hexagonal pyramid There are an unlimited number of 3d shapes. These are called polyhedrons, and their names are from the Greek word for the quantity (number) of faces (sides) on each shape. All faces are exactly the same as each other on regular polyhedrons; one or more faces are different from the other… Read More
the same number of sides and internal angles but not the length of the sides.
A shape with 13-20 sides may be called a polygon - but only if all the sides are straight lines - and there is nothing in the question to suggest that they are.
There is no standard formula since a polyhedron can have a number of different shapes. A hexahendron, for example, can be a cuboid (6 rectangular faces) or a triangular dipyramid (6 triangular faces) or others. The number of different shapes increases rapidly as the number of sides (which determines the name) increases. The only solution is to calculate the area of each face and add them together.
There are no parallel sides on a nonagon (nine-sided figure)... Regular shapes with an odd-number of sides have no parallel sides.
A parallelogram belongs to the class of shapes named as quadrilaterals because it has 4 sides.
circle 1 triangle 3 quadrilateral 4 pentagon 5 hexagon 6 heptagon 7 Octagon 8 nonagon 9 decagon 10 hendecagon 11 dodecagon 12 hope this helps xXx Note, that "all the shapes", as asked in the question would require an infinitely long answer. These is only a selection of shapes that have names. Many don't even have names.
Yes. For a given number of sides, you can have "regular" polygons where all sides are of the same length, and "irregular" polygons with different lengths and angles. A "concave" polygon is one having interior angles greater than 180°, so that line segments fall between two other points on the shape, such as a tetragon formed as a nested letter V.

parallelograms, and rectangles (parallelograms)
Parallelogram Rhombus Hexagon Octagon Pentagon Any shape that has even number of sides.
The best name for that is "a 111-sided shape". It really isn't worthwhile to find more specific names for hundreds of shapes whose only difference is the number of sides.
Any 4 sided shape is a quadrilateral. If all sides are of different lengths, that is as specific as you can get. Other 4 sided shapes have special characteristics about them, so they are given special names. They are still quadrailaterals.
