**Does a rectangle have 6 faces and 12 edges?**

A rectangular prism has 6 faces, 8 vertices (or corners) and 12 edges. A cube or rectangular prism can also be called a hexahedron because it has six faces. Hexa means six.

### What is the number of faces if there are 6 vertices and 12 edges?

Polyhedra

Name | # of Faces | # of Vertices |
---|---|---|

Cube | 6 | 8 |

Regular Octahedron | 8 | 6 |

Regular Dodecahedron | 12 | 20 |

Regular Icosahedron | 20 | 12 |

**Can a polyhedron have 12 edges 6 vertices and 6 faces?**

Step-by-step explanation: In geometry, an octahedron (plural: octahedra) is a polyhedron with eight faces, twelve edges, and six vertices.

#### What are the 12 edges of a cube?

The cube is the only regular hexahedron and is one of the five Platonic solids. It has 6 faces, 12 edges, and 8 vertices. The cube is also a square parallelepiped, an equilateral cuboid and a right rhombohedron….Cube.

**What shape has exactly 12 edges?**

cube

Explanation: A cube or a cuboid is a three dimensional shape that has 12 edges, 8 corners or vertices, and 6 faces.

## Which shape has 3 more edges than vertices?

The base of a triangular prism has 3 edges. It therefore has 3 side faces plus the base and top, or 5 in all.

**Can a polyhedron have 20 faces 12 vertices and 30 edges?**

Answer: According to the formula given by Euler. Therefore, there are 30 edges of a polyhedron having 20 faces and 12 vertices.

### Why are there 12 edges in a cube?

A cube has six faces which are all squares, so each face has four equal sides and all four interior angles are right angles. A cube has 12 edges. Because all faces are squares and congruent to each other, all 12 edges are the same length.

**What is an edge on cube?**

Answer: The edge of a cube is the line segment joining the two vertices. There are a total of 12 edges in a cube. Let’s understand the properties of a cube in detail. Explanation: A line segment joining the two vertices is called an edge.

#### What 3D shape has 5 faces 8 edges?

Square pyramid
