How many vertices does a cube have? How do you know for sure?

  • Math -

    A cube has 24. Each side has 4 vertices and there are 6 sides.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.

    Mmmmh, I have a picture cube in front of me that my wife has filled with pictures of the grandkids.
    I can only count 6 corners.

  • Math -

    Although there are 6 sides, there are 8 corners — four on the top and four on the bottom. Each corner has 3 vertices, one for each side.

    I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
