How Many Vertices Does a Cone Have?

Answer

A cone has no vertices, due to a vertex having to be a point where two or more straight lines meet. A cone has one circular base and one apex. As much as many books teach that a cone has one vertex, that is not true.

A cone has one base, one curved surface and one vertex, depending on the definition of "vertices". It technically has no edges.
Faces 2 the base and the slanted side. Edges 1 separating the base and apex.Vertices-1 there is an apex which is the tip, or top of the cone
Cones do not have any edges because an edge is considered a straight line that meets with another edge. However, the very tip of the cone is considered as a vertex. So there is one vertex on a cone.
