Hello, prasum!

Have you ever heard of *punctuation*?

A cube is coloured red on two opposite faces, blue on two adjacent faces,

and yellow on two remaining faces.

It is then cut into two halves along a plane parallel to red faces.

One piece is cut into 4 equal cubes and other one into 32 equal cubes.

How many cubes will not have any face coloured?

I don't suppose you made a sketch . . .

Consider a 4-inch cube.

Color the top and bottom red.

Color the front and left face blue.

Color the right and back face yellow.

Bisect the cube horizontally.

. . Each half is a block.

The top half is cut into four equal cubes; each is

. . *All* of them will have at least one painted face.

The bottom half is cut into 32 equal cubes; each is
