Q: A: ### Quick Answer

**A cylinder has three faces or individual surfaces.** It is a tube-shaped object that is solid on both ends, rather than hollow. It has one face on each end of the cylinder and a third face that wraps continuously around its shaft.

Each individual surface of a three-dimensional object is considered a face. Faces are separated by edges. A cube has six faces, and a pyramid has four. While the individual surfaces on cubes and pyramids are easy to count because they are flat, faces are not always flat surfaces. They can also be curved, like the third face on a cylinder. Similarly, a cone has two faces and one edge, and a ball has only one face and no edges.

Full Answer >**An octagonal pyramid has nine faces: eight are triangular faces and one face is a regular octagon. It also has 23 edges and nine vertices.**The topmost corner that connects all the faces is called the apex.Filed Under: - Q:
## How many faces, edges and vertices does a cube have?

A:

Full Answer >**A cube has six faces, 12 edges and eight vertices.**Each face of a cube is an identical square, and every edge has an identical length, which is equal to the length of the sides of the faces.Filed Under: - Q:
