Vertices. A rectangular pyramid consists of

**five vertices**, or points at which edges intersect. One vertex is located at the top of the pyramid, where the four triangular faces meet. The remaining**four vertices**are located on each corner of the rectangular base.

Correspondingly, how many vertices does a rectangular prism have?

8

Consequently, does a rectangle have 4 vertices?

Properties of a **rectangle**: It **is** a flat shape. It **has 4** sides (edges) It **has 4** corners (**vertices**) It **has 4** right angles.
