Question from Emily, a student:

I am in the 3rd grade and my teacher gave us a question. What is a solid figure with 3 rectangular faces and 2 triangular faces?

Thank You

Hi Emily,

Maybe you can get your parents to take you camping so you can relax and look at your tent and think about this problem.
