Exercise 17.2
1. Can a polyhedron have for its faces
(i) 3 triangles?
(ii) 4 triangles?
(iii) a square and four triangles?
Solution:
(i) No
(ii) Yes
(iii) Yes
2. Which are prisms among the following?
Solution:
(i) and (iv) are the only prisms.
3. Verify Eulerâ€™s formula for these solids:
Solution:
Faces

Edges 
F + V = E + 2 

(i) 
7

16 
9 + 9 = 16 + 2 18 = 18 
4. Can a polyhedron have 15 faces, 30 edges and 20 vertices?
Solution:
We know that
F + V = E + 2
Substituting the values
15 + 20 = 35 and 30 + 2 = 32
Here
35 â‰ 32
Therefore, a polyhedron cannot have 15 faces, 30 edges and 20 vertices.
5. If a polyhedron has 8 faces and 8 vertices, find the number of edges.
Solution:
We know that
A polyhedron has 8 faces and 8 vertices.
Here
No. of edges = F + V â€“ 2
Substituting the values
= 8 + 8 â€“ 2
= 14
6. If a polyhedron has 7 faces and 10 vertices, find the number of edges.
Solution:
We know that
A polyhedron has 7 faces and 10 vertices
Here
No. of edges = F + V â€“ 2
Substituting the values
= 7 + 10 â€“ 2
= 15
7. Write the number of faces, vertices and edges in
(i) an octagonal prism
(ii) decagonal pyramid.
Solution:
No. of faces 
No. of vertices 
No. of edges 

(i) an octagonal prism
