Question Number: 8062

Law 2 - The Ball

RE: Under 11

Lauren Willis of Marietta, USA asks...

How many leather panels does a soccer ball have?

Answer provided by Referee Chuck Fleischer

I could count them, but then again, so could you. Perhaps that will give you an answer. You might wonder why, in spherical geometry, a number of plane pentagons and hexagons will form a sphere. I know the answer to that one too! Time spent in the books is much better for you than asking questions you could answer very simply. Thanks for asking, but there'll be no answer from me on this one. ..Regards,
