To create your own triangular pyramid you can construct your own from a larger triangle as shown in the net below:

A triangular pyramid net. Cut along the thick blank line and fold on the dotted lines.

The labels on this net should help you to find out how many edges are on a triangular pyramid.

You’ll also notice there are other labels, such as faces and corners . When you’ve cut along the thick black line and folded the triangles up along the dotted line you should be able to see how many faces , corners and edges a triangular pyramid has.

Here’s a triangular pyramid printable free for you to use and cut out to answer those questions:
