    • For those who don't know, a buckyball is an extremely stable soccer-ball-shaped molecule made up of 20 hexagons and 12 pentagons.
    • Resembling the shape of a football, Fullerene contains 60 carbon molecules in hexagons and pentagons.
    • You might define a more-general class polygon, which would have triangle as a subclass, along with other subclasses such as quadrilateral, pentagon and hexagon.
    • Perfect crystal structures can contain pyramids, cubes, or hexagons, but not pentagons.

    • The hexagons, pentagons, and triangles that make up the biomes all have their own unique specification due to the irregular nature of the site.
    • They are formed from 60 atoms of carbon bonded together in a combination of pentagons and hexagons to form a ball, just like a soccer ball.
    • This time the board is made up of hexagons (instead of squares) and up to four may play.
    • They come in two shapes, either a square or a hexagon.
    • For example, 10 carbon atoms can be arranged into two conjoined hexagons, each hexagon sharing two carbon atoms with the other.
    • This requires that their underlying lattices be based on triangles, parallelograms, or hexagons.
    • Triangles, squares and hexagons create their own proportions and systems.

    • Secondly, simple, geometric plans such as squares, triangles, and hexagons are common to the most dramatic of these examples.
    • The diamond core remains intact, but the surface breaks into carbon hexagons and pentagons, effectively encasing the diamond in a shell similar to a buckyball, which is also called a fullerene.
    • It is composed of pentagons and hexagons of carbon atoms arranged in a sphere, just like a football (or soccer ball for US readers).
    • In the other case, the sides of the hexagon are parallel to the sides of the given triangle.
