Tabulate the number of faces, edges and vertices for the following polyhedrons: (Here ‘V’ stands for number of vertices, ‘F’ stands for number of faces and ‘E’ stands for number of edges).

Solid F V E F+V E+2
Cuboid          
Triangular pyramid          
Triangular prism          
Pyramid with square base          
Prism with square base          

What do you infer from the last two columns? In each case, do you find
F + V = E + 2, i.e., F + V – E = 2? This relationship is called Euler’s formula.
In fact this formula is true for any polyhedron.
