\(6a^2 = 300\)
\(a = 5\sqrt{2}\)
\(a^3 = 250 \sqrt{2}\)

Be aware - the question ask volume in cubic cm

Given - surface area =300
6*a^2=300
Side = 5\sqrt {2}\ INCHES

Volume =a^3* (2.54)^3 cubic cm
( 1 inch =2.54 cm)

No need to calculate

Imo E

Since there are 6 faces of a cube, if we let the side of the cube = n, we have:

6n^2 = 300

n^2 = 50

n = √50

Since the volume of the cube is n^3, we have:

volume = √50 x √50 x √50 = 50√50 = 50 x √25 x √2 = 50 x 5 x √2 = 250√2

Answer: B
