COMMENTS

For a cuboctahedron create all possible internal planes defined by connecting any three of its vertices. Use all the resulting planes to cut the polyhedron into individual smaller polyhedra. The sequence lists the number of resulting n-faced polyhedra, where 4 <= n <= 9.

See A339348 for the corresponding sequence for the rhombic dodecahedron, the dual polyhedron of the cuboctahedron.

EXAMPLE

The cuboctahedron has 12 vertices, 14 faces, and 24 edges. It is cut by 67 internal planes defined by any three of its vertices, resulting in the creation of 6728 polyhedra. No polyhedra with ten or more faces are created.
