A pyramid is any three-dimensional polyhedron where the faces other than the base are triangular and meet at one point, called the vertex or apex. The base of a pyramid can be any polygon: a square, or a triangle, leading to four or three non-base faces.
Kinds of pyramids:

  • Pyramids have different appearance depending on their base.
  • Each segment of the base is elongated to form a triangle.
  • If a pyramid is formed from an octagonal base, then 8 triangles are formed.
  • In other words a pyramid is a polyhedron with a single base and lateral faces that are all triangular. All lateral edges of a pyramid meet at a single point, or vertex.
