Find the shape that has six sides and is not closed.

We’re looking for the shape which has six sides and not closed. If a shape is not closed, it means it’s open. So, we’re looking for the shape that has six sides and is an open shape. This shape is a closed shape. All of its sides meet. One, two, three, four. We’re back to the point where we started. The line segments are all connected. They all meet. We know this is not the shape we’re looking for. It has four sides, and it’s a closed shape.

We’re looking for a shape with six sides which is open. Two of our three shapes are open. Which one has six sides? Let’s count the number of sides the first shape has. One, two, three, four, five, six. This is the shape that has six sides and is not closed. We know that this shape is not closed. Let’s just check how many sides it has. One, two, three, four, five. We found a shape that has six sides and is not closed.
