Q:

How Many Vertices Does a Cylinder Have?

A:

Quick Answer

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.

Full Answer

A vertex is where two lines intersect. It is otherwise known as a corner. A triangle, for example, has three vertices while a square has four. Three-dimensional objects tend to have more vertices than do two-dimensional figures because they have more corners than their two-dimensional counterparts. A cube, for example, has eight vertices, and a triangular prism has six.

    What sort of triangle has no equal angles or sides?

    A:

    A scalene triangle has no equal sides. There is no word for a triangle with three different angle sizes. The words describing angle sizes — right, obtuse and acute — reference the degrees of the angle, not their relationships to one another.

    How many triangles are in an octagon?

    A:

    In an octagon, there are six triangles formed when diagonals are drawn from each vertex. An octagon is a figure that consists of eight straight sides, and it can be either regular or irregular polygons. While irregular octagons do not have sides of equal length, regular octagons do.
