Q:

How many vertices does a cube have?

A:

A cube has a total of eight vertices, despite having six square faces that would all have four vertices of their own if pulled apart. A cube has six square faces that are joined not only at the sides, but at the vertices, essentially resulting in two squares that are joined by four lines, one at each corner.

A cube is the three dimensional extension of a square. A square is a two dimensional shape with four equal length sides and angles of 90 degrees. A cube is a six-faced shape in three dimensions consisting of all square faces. All 12 edges of a cube are of equal length and all internal angles are exactly 90 degrees.

    How many vertices does a square have?

    A:

    A square is a polygon with four vertices. The shape has four equal sides and four 90-degree angles; thus, it is called a regular quadrilateral. The sides meet in four corners, which are called vertices.

    How many vertices does a sphere have?

    A:

    A vertex is a corner on a polygon, polytope or polyhedron, and when faces, facets or edges of an object come together, a vertex forms; however, because a sphere features no meeting points, it has no vertices. Even though a sphere does have one continuous surface, its lack of meeting points with any other surface means that it technically has no faces. Spheres have no lines, so they also have no edges.

    How many vertices are in a rectangular prism?

    A:

    Rectangular prisms have eight vertices. They also have six faces and 12 edges. "Vertices" is the plural of "vertex," which is defined as the point where three or more faces come together to form a point or a corner, in terms of polyhedrons

    How Many Vertices Does a Cylinder Have?

    A:

    A cylinder has zero vertices. A cylinder does not have a vertex because there is no point where two lines meet. This is because a cylinder, unlike a prism, has circular faces; there is no corner where two straight lines meet.
