Here is the information I've been given:

The sum of the lengths of the 12 edges of a cuboid is

cm. The distance from one corner of the cuboid to the furthest corner is

cm. What is the total surface area of the cube in terms of

and

.

This is what I've got so far:

Call the three lengths on the cuboid

.

The total surface area =

As

is the longest diagonal,

And finally, as

is the total lengths,

I've tried to re-arrange those equations to get the surface area in terms of

and

, but to no avail.

All help appreciated,

David
