Define semiregular polygon as a polygon which has all of its' edges of the same length. Also, all of its' interior or exterior angles must be equal (meaning that any interior angle must be x or 360-x). It must be concave and simple (it should not self-intersect) and only two of its' edges are allowed to meet in each corner. 
Find the semiregular polygon that has the minimum number of edges.
