A polyhedron that has 5 faces and 5 vertices has 8 edges and is called a

**square pyramid**.

People also ask, what 3d shape has five faces and five vertices?

In geometry, a pentahedron (plural: pentahedra) is a polyhedron with five faces or sides. There are no face-transitive polyhedra with five sides and there are two distinct topological types. With regular polygon faces, the two topological forms are the **square pyramid** and **triangular** prism.

Likewise, what 3d shape has 6 faces 8 vertices and 12 edges?

A **cube** or a **cuboid** is a three dimensional shape that has 12 edges, 8 corners or vertices, and 6 faces.

A polygon is a closed figure with straight edges. The most common polygons are pentagon, hexagon, and octagon. These are pentagons. A pentagon has **5** angles, **5** sides and **5 vertices**.
