The surface area of a cube is A square meters and the volume of that cube is V cubic meters. If A=2V, what is the volume of the cube, in cubic meters?

A. 8
B. 27
C. 64
D. 125
E. 216


6s^2 = A
s^3 = V

A=2V
6s^2 = 2s^3
3 = s
V = 27

- Surface area of cube = \(6*(s^2)=A\).
- Volume of cube = \(s^3=V\).
- Since \(A = 2V\), so \(6s^2=2*(s^3)\) -> simplify, we get \(s=3\).
- Volume of cube with \(s=3\) -> \(s^3=27\).

B.

If the one that I highlighted is the formula of surface area of the cube, then incorrect.

Assuming cube to have side of x

Volume is x^3=V--------------------1
Surface area is 6x^2=A-------------2

Given A=2V

Substituting from 1 &2

2(x^3)=6x^2

Hence x=3
Volume = 27

Hence B.

We can create the equation in which s = the length of an edge of the cube. Recall that the surface area of a cube is the area of the six (equal) faces: 6s^2. The volume of the cube is s^3. Thus, we have:

6s^2 = 2(s^3)

3s^2 = s^3

3 = s

So, the volume of the cube is 3^3 = 27.

Answer: B
