well not necessarily
six is the greatest
The top and he bottom could be painted the same colour though
so that brings it down to five...
Three - because you have a metting
Then you paint the left and the right the same colour.
Of three faces at EACH corner ==> Atleast 3
let's try an example |dw:1346152773006:dw| in my example you have red on the front and back; yellow on the sides; orange on top and bottom
it follows the requirement that no adjacent faces have same colour
every opposite face can have same color,so 3 pairs of faces---?3 colors...
ohhhh i get it so the leats is 3?
