If a polyhedron has 13 vertices and 21 faces, how many edges does it have? I can't figure this one out.

Use Euler's formula which says that

V+F=E+2

where

V=vertices

F=faces

E=edges

For example, a cube has 8 vertices, 6 faces and 12 edges, so

8+6=12+2

For a given polyhedron, there are 24 vertices and 32 faces. How many edges does the polyhedron have? [Hint: V + F = E + 2.]
