How many different ways are there of putting 5 hexagons together so that at least one side touches?
Can you show me please?
Phil
More questions:
1. As long as they result in non-superimposable pictures without flipping? Or with flipping?
2. You didn't specify whether they are equilateral hexagons.
3. You didn't specify whether they are convex hexagons.

* Each hexagon must have a common side with at least one other hexagon.
If you're waiting for some Magic Formula, you've a long wait . . .
There are 18 ways.
Do you really expect someone to draw the diagrams?
I refer you to Polyominoes by Solomon W. Golomb.
