Prove there is precisely one 4 regular graph on 6 vertices.

I don't know if this will work but have you tried showing that any two 4-regular graph on 6 vertices are isomorphic?

That will be a graph obtained by removing 3 edges from complete graph on 5 vertices .

proof .

consider 5-regular graph with 6 vertices it is nothing but complete graph on 5 vertices .Now you need to reduce one degree for each of six vertices that is you need to remove 3 edges. - Dec 19th 2009, 04:49 PMkumarstays4-regular graph with 6 vertices
