### AlgTop8e: Polyhedra and Euler's formula (last)

We investigate the five Platonic solids: tetrahedron, cube, octohedron, icosahedron and dodecahedron. Euler's formula relates the number of vertices, edges and faces. We give a proof using a triangulation argument and flow down a sphere. This is the fifth and final video of the eighth lecture in this beginner's course on Algebraic Topology, given by Assoc Prof N J Wildberger of the School of Mathematics and Statistics at UNSW.
