Connect the pyramids

We have two pyramids, a square-base right pyramid and a triangle-base right pyramid. All the edges of both the pyramids are of equal length. We joined both the pyramids with one of the triangle-faces of one pyramid coinciding with one of the triangle-faces of another. What are the total number of faces of the new solid figure obtained?
