I don't understand the question at all. Your title says probability, but then you're asking for the number of ways, not probability.

What are the different ways you can paint the cube? Is there just color or no color? Are there multiple colors?

Agreed question is not clear at all..

Hm!! nevermind..with my answer..

Forget about my post.. I find probability in the subject.. and then assumed something..and then arrived with some answer.( I can blame on financial turmoil.... :P )
