# Euclid’s Mathematics of polyhedron Hello learners,

Hope you’re doing well.

In this tutorial I’m​ going to share and explain some of the illustrated topics which had given a boost to various fields of MATHEMATICS and being explained and derived by a great Mathematician named

## EUCLID: Polyhedron

sir Euclid was a great mathematician and physicist and had a great impact over other mathematicians​ of the same time, because of his sense of understanding the topic and providing Solutions of hard known problems

### He is also considered as Father of Geometry.

I’ve picked this mathematician to elaborate some of the explanation given by him, so let’s start,

### Euclid’s law for Polyhedrons-

Euclid has given a concept for Polyhedrons that ” there is some relation between vertices, edges and faces of any polygon and this relationship stands true for each Polyhedron” and this relationship can be

#### For any cube

there is    V (vertices) = 8
F ( faces )    = 6
E ( edges)    = 12
then
8 + 6 = 12 + 2
14      = 14
this relationship stands constant for any of the polyhedron
likewise

#### For triangular pyramid

there is V (vertices) = 4
F ( faces )    = 4
E ( edges)    = 6
then 4 + 4= 6 +2
8    = 8

#### for Square Pyramid / Rectangular Pyramid

there is V (vertices) = 5
F ( faces )    = 5
E ( edges)    = 8

then 5 + 5 = 8 + 2
10  = 10

#### Square/ Rectangular Prism

there is V (vertices) = 6
F ( faces )    = 5
E ( edges)    = 9
hence   6 + 5 = 9 + 2
11  = 11
so we’ve seen Sr Euclid has given a very useful concept for various 3D shapes/ polyhedrons
