A nut
A hexagonal block   ##### Question 8:

Draw the front view, side view and top view of the given objects.
A dice
A solid  ##### Question 9: What happens to F, V and E if some parts are sliced off from a solid?

##### Question 10:

Can a polyhedron have for its faces:
(i) 3 triangles?
(ii) 4 triangles?
(iii) a square and four triangles?

(i) No
(ii) Yes, Pyramid
(iii) Yes, Square Pyramid.

##### Question 11:

Is it possible to have a polyhedron with any given number of faces?

Yes, Pyramid.

##### Question 12:

Which are Prism’s among the following: (ii) Unsharpened Pencil and (iii) a table weight.

##### Question 13:

(i) How are prisms and cylinders alike?
(ii) How are pyramids and a cones alike?

(i) Both prism and cylinder may have common vertical axis.
(ii) Both pyramid and cone have only one vertex above the plane base.

##### Question 14:

Is a square prism same as a cube? Explain.

Yes, a square prism can be same as cube in the same way as a rectangular prism is same as cuboid.

##### Question 15:

Verify Euler’s formula for these solids: (i) Number of faces F = 5
Number of vertices V = 9
Number of edges E = 12
$\therefore$ By Euler’s law :
F + V – E = 2
5 + 9 – 12 = 2
2 = 2
(ii) Number of faces F = 10
Number of vertices V = 9
Number of edges E = 17
$\therefore$ By Euler’s law :
F + V – E
10 + 9 – 17 = 2
2 = 2

##### Question 16:

Using Euler’s formula, find the unknown: According to Euler’s Formula :
F + V = E + 2
Therefore, we have: ##### Question 17:

Can a polyhedron have 10 faces, 20 edges and 15 vertices ?

$⇒$ 10 + 15 – 20
$⇒$ 25 – 20 = 5 $\ne$ 2.
