Question from sheila, a parent:

what is the relationship between the number of faces and the number of edges of a triangular pyramid ?


I think you are looking for is Euler's Formula which states that for any convex polyhedron

V - E + F = 2

where V is the number of vertices, E is the number of edges and F is the number of faces.
