There are about three types of pyramids in Ancient Egypt: "True" pyramid- The typical pyramid, with smooth sides and hard edges(the pyramids you would imagine) Bent pyramid- Very smooth and has curved sides(obviously looks bent!) Stepped Pyramid- Has many steps to the top(it's a STEP pyramid!)

The base of a pyramid only has four sides, as it is a square. That is so not true. A tetrahedron is a pyramid with a triangular base. A pyramid can have any polygon as its base.

False. Ziggurats were pyramid like structures used as temples by the ancient Sumerians, Babylonians and Assyrians.

the pointy pyramid is just that a pyramid

It has been suggested that the room that leads into the True Burial Chamber of a pyramid is called a subterranean chamber. This is all hypothesis since there are no texts identifying this.
