# What are the names of shapes with different number of sides?

They are called polygons.

### How do shapes get there name'?

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.

### What are names of different shapes?

A shape is an object with a specific number of sides. Some examples of shapes include circles, squares, triangles, pentagons, and hexagons.

### What are the different number of sides shapes called?

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.

### What is the names for a shape with equal sides?

### How do you specify 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.

### What are some names of 2d shapes and the number of sides for each?

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.

### What is 2D shape does not have equal sides?

2d shapes that do not have equal sides do not usually have special names.

### What are the names of 3d shapes with more than 14 sides?

### How many sides does an aquamarine have?

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.

### Which shapes have opposite sides congruent and parallel?

There are many such shapes. Any polygon with an even number of sides can have opposite sides that meet the above requirements.

### Will a shape always have the same number of vertice as sides?

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.

### Where did shapes with more than 7 sides get there names from?

We get all shape names (Polygons) from the greek language.

### Does a polygon have more sides or more angles and why?

yes a polygon does have the most number and sides because they have the most number of shapes with the most number of sides

### What are the names of all the sided shapes?

If all the sides are straight lines, then they are known as polygons.

### How does different shapes have the same perimeter?

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

### How many shapes have all equal sides lengths?

An infinite number. A polygon with any number of sides can be equilateral (ie have sides of equal length).

### How do you figure the area if the sides are not the same?

It depends on the shape. There are different formulae for different shapes.

### What are the names of all the shapes with up to 10 sides?

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.

### Are similar shapes always congruent?

Similar shapes have the same shape,but different size. The corresponding sides are proportional.

### What is a 250sided shape called?

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.

### What two different shapes make a hexagon?

A 6 sided hexagon can have regular sides or irregular sides

### What are the names of all 3D shapes?

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

### What are all the 3d shapes in the world?

### What determines whether two shapes are similar?

the same number of sides and internal angles but not the length of the sides.

### What is the names of shapes with 13 to 20 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.

### What is the formula of surface area of a polyhedron?

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.

### How many parallel sides are on a nonagon?

There are no parallel sides on a nonagon (nine-sided figure)... Regular shapes with an odd-number of sides have no parallel sides.

### What are the geometric names for a parallellogram?

A parallelogram belongs to the class of shapes named as quadrilaterals because it has 4 sides.

### What are all the shapes and there number of 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.

### Do unusual shapes and normal shapes have the same name if they have the same number of sides?

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.

### What is the names of all 3d shapes?

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.

### What shape has 4 straight lines different lengths?

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.
