I have an indefinite number of regular dodecahedra, indistinguishable in appearance from each other. I have pots of red and blue paint. If each face of each dodecahedra is to be painted red or blue, how many dodecahedra which are distinguishable from each other shall I be able to produce?

Is this about Mr. Burnside and his Lemma?

I must admit to preferring forums over fora too!

I get 96. I think it is right, but the approach I used is not very elegant...still considering.
