I have got data about how many intersections and how many regions these different circles contain and what types of polygons are formed.

Can someone please assist me with developing an equation or making a conjecture about why certain shapes are formed when different amounts of points and point spaces are used. i.e 6 points connected to other points by 2 point spaces creates 2 overlappin squares..

please help
