Best Answer

There can be no simply connected polyhedron with the specified number of faces, vertices and edges.

The Euler characteristic requires that F + V = E + 2 where

F = number of faces

V = number of vertices

E = number of edges

This requirement is clearly not satisfied.

# of faces + # of edges + # of vertecies + 2

Sphere

According to Euler none; for all 3d shapes: Vertices + Faces = Edges + 2 ⇒ 12 + 8 = 19 + 2 ⇒ 20 = 21 So unless 20 does equal 21, no 3d shape has 8 faces, 19 edges and 12 vertices. Any 3d shape with 8 faces would be an octahedron.
