• what does a 4d shape look like
• Interesting question!
An example of a 4d figure is a tesseract, which is a 4d extension of a cube. This can be constructed by drawing two cubes of the same size, then joining each corner (or vertex) of the first cube with the corresponding corner of the second cube (using a line segment to join them).
• it gets super easy and it very fun
• assignment is completed however there is no submit button to turn in the work
• Up vote if you like pizza
• what dose a 4d shape look like
• For example, to draw a representation of a 4d cube (called a tesseract):

1) Draw two 3d cubes, oriented in the same way.
2) Draw a line segment connecting each vertex of one cube to the corresponding vertex of the other cube.

The link https://mathworld.wolfram.com/Tesseract.html shows a picture of a tesseract.

Have a blessed, wonderful day!
• This is pretty easy, and in my opinion, I think each question should get harder and harder.
Upvotes if you agree with me!
