Q:A:### Quick Answer

**A two-dimensional rectangle has four vertices, and a three-dimensional rectangle has eight.** The differences between the two figures are the number of sides and points of intersection.

The geometric definition of a vertex is a point in a geometric solid where three or more sides intersect or where two sides intersect in a plane figure. Therefore, a vertex is a corner in a rectangle. There is another definition of a vertex, which is defined as a point farthest from the base. However, a rectangle may have many bases as opposed to a triangle, which has a side that is primarily used for the base.

## How many vertices does a circle have?

A:

Full Answer >**A circle does not have any vertices.**Vertices (plural for "vertex") are corners, or the place where two straight lines come together to form a point. Circles do not have straight lines that come together to form points.Filed Under: - Q:
## How many vertices does a hexagon have?

A:

Full Answer >**A hexagon has exactly six vertices.**A hexagon is a six-sided, two-dimensional shape. A regular hexagon consists of six equal sides with internal angles of 120 degrees, while an irregular hexagon can have sides and angles of any size.Filed Under:
