Rules 
A cube is a 3dimensional structure with three sides (length, width, and height) where all the sides equal (length = width= height). The word cube is derived from the Arabic word ”Kaba” a large cubeshaped structure.
A cube has 6 faces: The faces appear at front, back, right, left, top and bottom.
Cube has 8 vertices: The corner points are called vertices. There are four vertices on the top face and four more at the bottom face.
Cube has 12 Edges: The line which connects the two vertices is called edges. There are twelve edges in a cube. Four on the top surface and four at the bottom and four more verticle lines connecting the opposite vertices of top and bottom face.
Summary:
A cube is a 3dimensional representation of a square. Since dimensions of all the three sides, i.e. length, breadth, and height of a cube are equal, they are referred to as sides and is indicated by a symbol ‘s’.
The total surface area of a cube is:
If we divide a cube into the size part of its side, we get smaller cubes. A cube Shown below, which is painted on all the sides and then cut into 1/4th of its original face. Each small cube is known as “unit cube”.
The total number of smaller(unit) cubes generated due to the division of a cube to its.
Example: If we cut a cube to form three rows and three columns on each face then the total number of unit cubes will be = 3 * 3 * 3 = 27.
Following is the list of unit cube generation based on the division of a bigger cube:
Observe the cube shown. It has been divided into ¼ of its original side length. Hence the total number of smaller or unit cubes formed will be 64.
The most important thing to consider while solving the questions of such types is to visualizing the cube in your mind. By looking at the cube you can clearly identify the basic terminologies such as the face, vertex, and edge of a cube.
