00:00:00.600 --> 00:00:04.640
For the figure below, identify the shape of the base or bases.
00:00:05.080 --> 00:00:06.720
Then, classify the figure.
00:00:06.720 --> 00:00:11.440
Here, we can see that we have one base.
00:00:12.280 --> 00:00:19.840
And this base has one, two, three, four, five sides.
00:00:20.760 --> 00:00:26.480
So since the base has five sides, its base would be a pentagon.
00:00:26.960 --> 00:00:29.000
Now, it says to classify the figure.
00:00:29.400 --> 00:00:31.480
So would this be a pyramid or a prism?
00:00:32.400 --> 00:00:36.880
A pyramid will have one base and a prism will have two bases.
00:00:37.520 --> 00:00:40.640
So right from here, we know that we must have a pyramid.
00:00:41.280 --> 00:00:44.840
And a pyramid comes to a peak, just like we have here.
00:00:45.320 --> 00:00:48.320
Therefore, we have a pentagonal pyramid.
00:00:49.160 --> 00:00:55.640
So to answer our question, the shape of the base is a pentagon.
00:00:56.080 --> 00:01:00.120
And the classification of this figure would be a pentagonal pyramid.
