Look at this picture. Which shape is above the shape with three sides? The triangle, the hexagon, or the square.

First, we need to find the shape that has three sides. How many sides does the square have? Let’s count them: one, two, three, four. How many sides does a hexagon have? Let’s count them: one, two, three, four, five, six. A circle doesn’t have any straight sides. You could say it has one continuous curved edge. So how many sides does a triangle have? One, two, three.

The shape which has three sides is the triangle. So the question asks which shape is above the triangle. The shape which is above the triangle is the hexagon.

The triangle is the shape with three sides and the hexagon is above the triangle.
