"Geometry Riddle"


I need an answer to this geometry riddle: I am a 3-dimensional solid. I have five faces. One is a square. The other five are triangles that form a point at the top. What am I?

Ted - Tut, tut, tut. I know that you've buried the answer in that response somewhere. Maybe as the sands of time pass, we will be enlightened.

At least you could get the riddle typed correctly. There are 5 faces, one is the square, so that leaves how many? 5 or 4?


This must be a pyramid scheme of some type ;-)

Take a look in the sands, look for the human faced lion with a broken beard and ask for Cheops. Are you sure it isn't covered in chalk slabs? Perhaps it is the stairway to heaven or perhaps the stars. Anyway, there's not much left in it now.
