					Euler’s Formula

   Sarina Jassy
• You might wonder what the title means. It
  is a “code” for vertices – edges + faces = 2.
  Which I will explain in the next couple of
  slides. This is Euler’s Formula!
• This cube is a normal cube. I am going to
  show you how the Euler’s formula works.

Start Counting: One Face
               The Formula
• We are going to fast forward and count all
  of the vertices (V), all of the edges (E) and
  all of the faces of the cube. This is the
  Euler’s formula V-E+F=2
• For a cube, this translates to:
  8 –12+6=2
This formula works for all polygons.
