How many vertices does the shape have?
A vertex is the point where two or more lines meet. “Vertices” is the plural of the word “vertex.” So “vertices” means “points.” So let’s count the number of vertices this shape has. Four lines meet at this vertex. Three lines or edges meet at this vertex. They have another one here, another vertex here, and one more here. That makes five vertices. The answer is five. This shape has five vertices.
