Just the usual regular dodecahedron, with 12 pentagonal faces. There are 4 different pentagonal tetrominos that can be used to tile it. (As usual for these problems we don't consider reflected tiles or tilings as different.) Find a tiling that uses (a) 3 tetrominos of the same type; find " " " " (b) " " " different types. Not especially hard, but each solution is unique, which is amusing. ======================================================================= Bill Taylor W.Taylor@math.canterbury.ac.nz ======================================================================= This sig virus is copyrighted.
