Q:

How many vertices does a cuboid have?

A:

A cuboid always has eight vertices. A cuboid is a three-dimensional shape that is similar to a cube in that it has six faces that are all at 90-degree angles to each other, but at least two of the faces on a cuboid are rectangles, not squares.

Full Answer

A cuboid can describe an infinite amount of six-sided, 3-D shapes that have rectangular sides. Up to four of the sides can be square, but if six sides are squares it is no longer a cuboid, but a cube. To calculate the volume of a cuboid, multiply the length, width and height together.

  • 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.

    How many vertices does a triangle have?

    A:

    A triangle has three vertices. A triangle consists of three lines, and the location where one line endpoint meets another line endpoint is called a vertex. A square consists of four vertices, while an octagon contains eight vertices.

    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.

    How many vertices does a rhombus have?

    A:

    A rhombus has four vertices. The point of intersection of two adjacent sides of a rhombus is called the vertex of the rhombus. A rhombus is a quadrilateral with all four sides equal.
