    @Empty because im not very familiar with Euler's formula.

    What are Platonic Solids?

    These are the platonic solids. They're just some pretty shapes, kind of like 3D versions of regular polygons: http://www.technologyuk.net/mathematics/geometry/images/geometry_0185.gif They obey Euler's characteristic formula: V-E+F=2 This is actually much simpler than it might appear! V means Vertices (corners) E means edges (where faces meet) and F means number of faces. So if you look at a cube, you can see that it has 6 faces (F=6), 8 corners (V=8) and 12 edges (E=12). So we plug these in: 8-12+6 and when you add these all up, you get 2! Use this example to help you understand what these words all mean by looking at a cube, and try it out on the other shapes. You'll know you did it right when you get 2. :D

    Yeah this is in general for shapes that aren't perfect like these.

    Um. How do I get the properties of each of the platonic solid?>_<

    for planar graphs(graphs whose edges don't cross) I think.

    Do you know individual properties of the platonic solids?@Empty
