Use Eulerís formula to answer the question.
A polyhedron has 12 edges and 6 faces, how many vertices does it have?

Euler's formula state that for a polyhedrons,
V=number of vertices
E=number of edges
F=number of faces
Take a tetrahedron, which has
6 edges, 4 vertices and 4 faces
For the given polyhedron,
So solve for V in
Post your answer for a check if you wish.
