Hi Learning Math;

Welcome to the forum!

**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.**

**I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.**

Hi Hotel8561

A triangular pyramid has 3 vertices on the base and one more at the top = 4 altogether.

A triangular prism has 3 vertices to make one end, another 3 at the other end so 6 altogether.

Look at:
