A flat ball? (Posted on 2004-04-08) Difficulty: 2 of 5
Soccer balls are usually covered with a design based on regular pentagons and hexagons.

How many pentagons/hexagons MUST there be, and why?

How would one show the angle deficit is always 720 degrees.
I've never noticed this but I'm sure its been proven.
