# Identify the shape whose net is given below.

**Solution:**

We have to identify the given shape by using the net given.

We observe that the given net is made of __equilateral triangles__.

When folded, it results in a regular octahedron.

Since the given shape is equilateral, it has congruent faces.

A __polyhedron__ is regular if its faces are congruent regular polygons and the same number of faces meet at each vertex.

Therefore, the shape is a regular polyhedron.
