## What shape has 8 triangles 6 squares?

cuboctahedron

A cuboctahedron is a polyhedron with 8 triangular faces and 6 square faces.

**What 3d shape has 8 triangular faces?**

octahedron

What is an octahedron? Octahedra have: 8 triangular faces. 12 edges.

### What shape does 8 triangles make?

In geometry, an octahedron (plural: octahedra, octahedrons) is a polyhedron with eight faces, twelve edges, and six vertices. The term is most commonly used to refer to the regular octahedron, a Platonic solid composed of eight equilateral triangles, four of which meet at each vertex.

**What 3d shape has 6 square faces?**

Cubes

Cubes have: • 6 square faces; • 12 edges; • 8 vertices; • edges that are all the same length.

#### How is cuboctahedron formed?

A cuboctahedron is an Archimedean solid. It is generated by truncating the vertices of a cube or of an octahedron at 1/2 edge-length. There are 6 square faces on the cuboctahedron, one for each face of the cube. There are 8 equilateral triangular faces, one for each vertex of the cube.

**Who created the Rhombicuboctahedron?**

The first printed version of the rhombicuboctahedron was by Leonardo and appeared in Pacioli’s Divina proportione (1509). A spherical 180° × 360° panorama can be projected onto any polyhedron; but the rhombicuboctahedron provides a good enough approximation of a sphere while being easy to build.

## How many edges does a octagonal prism have?

24

Octagonal prism/Number of edges

**What shape can you make with 6 triangles?**

regular hexagon

A regular hexagon can be dissected into six equilateral triangles by adding a center point.

### What shapes can you make with 6 equilateral triangles?

What happens if you connect 6 equilateral triangles at each vertex? You get a flat surface known as regular triangular tiling. The shape is now two dimensional, and it can spread out infinitely in any direction while maintaining its regular construction. Regular triangular tiling.

**What 3D shape has 6 squares and 8 corners?**

A cuboid has 6 rectangular faces, which are the outside surfaces of a 3D shape. A cuboid has 12 straight edges, which are the lines between the faces. A cuboid has 8 vertices, which are its corners where the edges meet. A cuboid has exactly the same number of faces, edges and vertices as a cube.

**How do you find the area of a cuboctahedron?**

If a is the length of the edge of the cuboctahedron, the surface ist O=6*a²+8*(1/4)sqrt(3)a²=[6+2sqrt(3)]a². You use the area formulas A=(1/4)sqrt(3)a² of the equilateral triangle and A=a² of the square.
