A 5 cubic centimeter cube is painted on all its side. If it is sliced into 1 cubic centimer cubes, how many 1 cubic centimeter cubes will have exactly one of their sides painted?
You are all right but I have a fundamental question:
I thought that a 5cc cube is a cube with side s has a volume of s*s*s = s^3=5 so s=cubic root(5)cm=1,7cm.
If the cube has a side=5, then its volume wd be 5*5*5=125cc....
Like a square with an area of 25 cm2 has a side s=sqrt(25)=5cm.
Can you please explain where I'm wrong?
