## Number of vertices on a square pyramid

**How many vertices are there on a square pyramid?**

**5
**It is interesting to know that in geometry, a square pyramid is a pyramid having a square base. It is widely known the fact that a square pyramid has 5 vertices. What about the faces of a square pyramid? It has 4 triangles and 1 square. The pyramid has 8 edges. Keep in mind that like all the pyramids, the square pyramid is self-dual, having the same number of vertices as faces. The vertex configuration is 4(3

^{2}.4)(3

^{4}).
