When we demonstrate polyhedra assembled from the Magic Edges set, people often ask the same question - what practical application does it have?

We give different answers. Someone polyhedrons are interesting only from an aesthetic point of view, someone sees the elements of the school course of stereometry.

In the book by Alexey Savvateev “Mathematics for the humanities. Live lectures" we found the answer to a similar question about the practical application of mathematics, which we found

Quote from the book:

“Listener: is it true that Ferm theorem have no practical use?

Farm theorems

Alexey Savvateev: And who knows? This may have something to do with the physical models of the world. In fact, the last interesting thing is mathematics. Mathematics is in a sense akin to real religion. This is a thing in itself. If this helps someone, mathematics is not particularly interesting. People who do mathematics have a completely different mood. These are other people. What, for example, are different teachers and officials. The same with mathematicians. These are two different people. "
