# What do you call a 3-hedron?

I was just reading about polyhedrons and wondered, even though it's an impossible shape, what a 3-hedron is called? I'm really asking what the Greek for '3'. Does it just converge to a triangle?

"tri" seems like the right prefix, coming from Latin and Greek. –  Dylan Moreland Jan 8 '12 at 4:52
That was my first thought, though thought 'tri' was only Latin. –  Korgan Rivera Jan 8 '12 at 4:54

@J.D.: No, tetrahedrons have 4 faces, not 3. The question is at face value asking about an object that doesn't exist, but is really asking about a prefix meaning $3$. –  Jonas Meyer Jan 8 '12 at 5:14
