# Answer to Question #39429 in Analytic Geometry for Don Brennecke

Question #39429

A soccer ball has 12 pentagons and 20 hexagons, making a perfect ball shape; I'm told that any other combination of polygon that also form a ball shape MUST have 'at least' 12 pentagons, yet I have a photo of a ball shaped with close to 90 hexagons and possibly ONLY 6 pentagons. I will email the photo if you wish to work out the exact numbers ... then tell me if you can how it can work with only 6 pentagons -- please.
