    Lateral edges, right? Like, how many parts could potentially cut you? :)

    You're guessing :P First, there's a triangle on both ends of the prism, so that's 3 edges each, do you agree, Gabby? :)

    And in the middle, you have three edges more, one per pair of points on the two triangles on both ends, if that makes any sense :D
