Bucky Ball
Hi everyone,

I'm not sure if this is the right place for this sort of question so if it is in the wrong place I apologise.

Now, My name is Dan and I am looking for some help on making a Polystyrene bucky ball.

We have 12 Pentagons and 20 Hexagons laid out in the shape in the picture I have attached, the thickness of these shapes are 1 inch. I need to know that angle that all the edges should be for it to fit together with no gaps.

I know nothing about maths so please explain as simeple as you can.

I would really appreciate any help. Thank you.

Does it mean that the length of side of every hexagon and pentagon is 1inch?

Keep Smiling
