**Explore solid figures.**

Solid figures can be classified by the number of faces, edges, and vertices.

A polygon that is a flat surface of a solid figure is a face.

An edge is a line segment formed where two faces meet.

A vertex is a point where three or more edges meet. The plural of vertex is vertices.
