side of the cube = 4
mid point is =2
now perimeter 2root2*3
= 6root2
hence B.

Find side length
\(s^3 = 64\)
\(\sqrt[3]{s^3} = \sqrt[3]{64}\)
\(s = 4\)



Perimeter?

Three two-dimensional triangles make up ∆ PQR (see diagram: ∆ PRS, ∆ QRS, and ∆ PQS)
Side length of all three = \(2\) (vertices at midpoint of cube's edges)
All three are congruent right isosceles triangles (45-45-90) with corresponding side ratios in length \(x : x : x\sqrt{2}\)

\(x = 2\), so hyptenuse of each two-dimensional triangle = \(2\sqrt{2}\)

Those hypotenuses are the perimeter of ∆ PQR. that is
Side length of ∆ PQR = \(2\sqrt{2}\)

Perimeter:
\(2\sqrt{2} + 2\sqrt{2} + 2\sqrt{2} = 6\sqrt{2}\)

Answer B

Volume of big cube = a^3 = 64 = 4^3

i.e. Side of big cube = 4

i.e. Base of the Cut pyramid = Equilateral triangle with sides of length = 2√2 . (Using property of 45-45-90 on one triangular face of the pyramid)

Perimeter = 3*2√2 = 6√2

Answer: option B
