Difference Between a Polygon and a Polyhedron
Question: What is the difference between a polygon and a polyhedron?
Answer: A polygon can be defined as a flat or plane figure, that is a 2-dimensional closed shape with straight sides. A polyhedron is defined as a solid figure, that is is a 3-dimensional solid made by joining together polygons.
Polygon is a 2-dimensional shape and polyhedron is a 3-dimensional shape.
Polygon is composed of a finite sequence of straight lines known as edges or sides and polyhedron is composed of flat faces and straight edges.
Examples of polygon - triangle, rectangle, pentagon.
Examples of polyhedron - triangular prism, rectangular prism.
