**Naming 3D Shapes**

Write the name of the 3D shape.**Identifying 3D Shapes by Name**

Which 3D shape matches with the name shown below? Choose a multiple choose option.**Faces, Vertices, and Edges of 3D Shapes**

For each 3D shape, write the number of faces, vertices, and edges.**Relationship between 3D Shapes and Face/Vertex/Edge Attributes**

Use the table for the attributes of different 3D shapes to answer.- What are the formulas for finding a pyramid's number of: faces, vertices, and edges - from using the number of sides in the base?

- What are the formulas for finding a prism's number of: faces, vertices, and edges - from using the number of sides in the base?

- Using the formulas found in parts a and b, write the number of faces, vertices and edges for a hexagonal pyramid and a hexagonal prism
