Many of us have played with a soccer ball before and have been interesed in its shape.  I used to think that all the faces on such a ball were hexagons.  However, after carefully studying it, I realized that even though some faces have six edges, there are many that hagve five edges also.  to be exact, a soccer ball is a polyhedron that consists of 12 regular pentagons and 20 regular hexagons.  A soccer ball is an example of a polyhedron.

    This is really cool. I always wondered about the hexagons on a soccer ball. and why it was like that.

    Interesting, I don’t really study soccer balls often but I can see how it is a polyhedron.
