Not a collage kid but got a new idea

well i'm a 16 year old kid still in high school and i think i found a new formula but my teachers think its irrelavant but i think otherwise. Its how to find the # of edges but euler has a type of formula
Eb = # of edges on a base Ef = # of edges on a face E = # of edges F= # of faces
this formula works only for prisms and pyramids
Eb(Ef1)=E
This one works for the dodecahedron and octahedron
Eb(Ef1)+(2Eb)=E
For laughs works on the icosahedron
F+10=E
I need an opinion to know if its relevant Plus i also need to know how to prove this and i'm clueless about proofs My teachers said i needed to ask on how to write a proof to someone on a collage level
