# What is the name of polyhedrons with twelve flat faces?

A polyhedron is a three-dimensional solid made up of polygons. It has flat faces, straight edges, and vertices.

## Answer: A polyhedron with twelve flat faces is known as a dodecahedron.

Let's understand this with the following explanation.

**Explanation:**

A polyhedron with twelve flat faces is known as a dodecahedron.

A dodecahedron is a three-dimensional figure having twelve faces that are pentagonal in shape. All the faces are flat 2-D shapes.

Dodecahedron" comes from the Greek words "dodeka" and "hedra," which mean "12" and "seat or base," respectively.

A few examples of a dodecahedron include the Bilinski dodecahedron, decagonal prism, hexagonal dipyramid, and undecagonal pyramid.
