If the book does not say 10000, what does it say?Originally Posted by kimki
Ok here is the question:
For a charity event, some students assembled one million small plastic cubes to form a massive cube. How many small cube faces could be seen on one face of the finished massive cubes?
I thought it would be cube root of 1 000 000 = 100 squared.
Thats not the answer thats in the book.
please help me!
If you have 1,000,000 cubes and you use them to form a monster cube, then you need that,
That happens when the side got 100 cubes.
Each face of a cube is 100x100 cubes thus they are
10,000 cubes visible on one side. But there are 6 side to a cube thus, 60,000 cubes visible.
