What Is a Polyhedron?


A polyhedron is a geometric solid in three dimensions with flat faces and straight edges. A simple example of a polyhedron is a cube, a six-faced polyhedron which has square faces. Each face of a polyhedron is a polygon, another type of geometric figure.

A polyhedron is a three-dimensional shape that is made up of a finite number of polygonal faces which are parts of planes, the faces meet in edges which are straight-line segments, and the edges meet in points called vertices. Cubes, prisms and pyramids are examples of polyhedral. The polyhedron surrounds a bounded volume in three-dimensional space; sometimes this interior volume is considered to be part of the polyhedron.
In the mathematical world of geometry, a polyhedron is more or less a three dimensional figure consisting of faces and sides that are polygons.
A polyhedron is a solid shape that has all flat surfaces, meaning there are no curves whatsoever. A prism would be a good example, as would a block of wood.
