# What does vertices mean in shapes?

In geometry, a vertex (in plural form: vertices or vertexes), often denoted by letters such as , , , , is a point where two or more curves, lines, or edges meet. As a consequence of this definition, the point where two lines meet to form an angle and the corners of polygons and polyhedra are vertices.

Above, how many vertices does a shape have?

If you have more than one vertex they are called vertices. You can also count the number of vertices in order to identify solid figures. Let's look at an example. When you count the number of vertices in the figure above, you see there are 7 vertices.

Nevertheless, how do you count vertices? Use this equation to find the vertices from the number of faces and edges as follows: Add 2 to the number of edges and subtract the number of faces. For example, a cube has 12 edges. Add 2 to get 14, minus the number of faces, 6, to get 8, which is the number of vertices.

Anywho, what is a shape with no vertices?

What are sides and vertices?

The two parts of a flat shape are its sides and its vertices. Sides are lines. Vertices are the points where the sides meet. We say vertex when there's just one.
