Surface area of a cube = 6*side^2 = 216

Side = 6.

Diagonal of a cube = side*√3 = 6√3.

D is the answer

A 6

B 9

C 12

D 6√3

E 9√3


6s^2 = 216
s= 6
diagonal of cube : s sqrt3 = 6 sqrt 3
IMO D

answer should be D not A.. please check

Area=6a^2 =216
-> a= 6
space diagonal of cube= √3a
-> √3*6
=6√3 (D)

I did not remember that the diagonal of a cube is side√3. Instead, I used the formula for the diagonal of a 3d rectangle
√[(length)^2+(width)^2+(height)^2]
√(6^2+6^2+6^2)
√(36+36+36)
√[36(1+1+1)
√[36(3)]
√36·√3
6√3
