For centuries following the fall of the Roman Empire, the Coliseum was plundered for building materials that were used throughout Rome, including St. Peter's Basilica!

Demand for yellow shirts to wear in honor of the 60th anniversary of Thailand's king Bhumibol Adulyadej's ascension was so large that the government threatened retailers with jail terms to prevent price gouging!

This figure contains only 9 circles and 8 hexagons.

< TASK > Answer the questions.

(1) What was plundered for building materials that were used throughout Rome?

(2) Why did the government threaten retailers with jail terms to prevent price gouging?

(3) How many hexagons does the figure contain?
