ABSTRACT
The article looks at various two- and three-dimensional figures and how many sides and faces they each have. When a figure is flat (two-dimensional), it is a plane figure. When a figure takes up space (three-dimensional), it is a solid figure. The flat surface of a solid figure is called a face. Plane and solid figures come in many different shapes. The flat surface of a cube is a square.
