The surface of your standard soccer ball is made up of several black pentagons and white hexagons, just like the ball pictured below.
If a ball shown here has 12 black pentagons, how many white hexagons does the ball have?
You probably can't visualize a real soccer ball in it's entirety, right? If you don't have a soccer ball handy, doing calculations is probably your best bet.
That's right! The answer is 20.
If you pay attention to the areas where the black and white shapes share an edge, the problem is a snap.
