The cube has 6 surfaces. On each surface there are exactly 8x8 or 64 cubes painted on 1 surface. Total number of cubes painted on 1 surface is therefore 64x6=384

The cube has 12 surface edges. On each surface edge, there are 8 cubes that are painted red on 2 surfaces. Total = 8x12=96

Therefore the prob = 384/1000 x 96/999
