True or false: The two given shapes have the same number of vertices.

We have to decide if this statement is true or false. Do the given shapes have the same number of vertices? Let’s start by marking and counting the vertices on the first shape. A vertex is the place where two or more edges meet. Here’s one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. This shape has eight vertices. Now, we need to count and then compare the number of vertices on the second shape. One, two, three, four, five, six. The two given shapes don’t have the same number of vertices. Our first shape has eight vertices, and the second has six. The statement which says that both shapes have the same number of vertices is false because each shape has a different number of vertices.
