Base Edge
Definition
A pyramid is a polyhedron formed by a polygonal face, called base, and a point external to the base, called vertex.
Properties
 In a pyramid there is a base face and lateral faces
 The lateral face of a pyramid are isosceles triangles congruent to each other
 Height: perpendicular segment that connects the vertex of the pyramid with the plane that contains the base
 Apothem: in the regular pyramid, segment that joins the vertex with the midpoint of the base edge. It coincides with the height of one of the triangles that make up the lateral faces
Other definitions
 A right pyramid is a pyramid in which the base polygon is inscribed in a circle, and the height joins the vertex with the center of the inscribed circle
 An oblique pyramid is any pyramid that is not a right pyramid
 A regular pyramid is a pyramid having a regular polygon as its base
