The ancient Greeks gave the polyhedron a name according to the number of faces. "Tetra" means four, "hedra" means the face (tetrahedron - a solid having four faces).

Therefore, the question "What is a tetrahedron?", We can give the following definition: "Tetrahedron is a geometric solid of four faces, each of which is a regular triangle."

Polyhedron refers to the regular polyhedra and is one of the five Platonic solids.

The tetrahedron has the following characteristics:

The type of the face is the right triangle;

The number of sides at the face is 3;

The total number of faces is 4;

The number of edges adjacent to the vertex is 3;

The total number of vertices is 4;

The total number of edges is 6;

The regular tetrahedron is composed of four equilateral triangles. Each vertex of it is a vertex of three triangles. Therefore, the sum of flat angles at each vertex is 180 °.

The tetrahedron has no center of symmetry, but has 3 axes of symmetry and 6 planes of symmetry.

Is the tetrahedron a pyramid? Yes, the tetrahedron is a triangular pyramid whose all sides are equal.

Can a pyramid be a tetrahedron? Only if it is a pyramid with a triangular base and each of its sides is an equilateral triangle.
