## Step by step guide to finding Volume and Surface Area of Cubes

- A cube is a three-dimensional solid object bounded by six square sides.
- Volume is the measure of the amount of space inside of a solid figure, like a cube, ball, cylinder or pyramid.
**Volume of a cube**\(=\) (one side)\(^3\)**surface area of cube**\(=6×\) (one side)\(^2\)

### Cubes – Example 1:

Find the volume and surface area of this cube.

**Solution:**

Use volume formula: **volume** \(=\) (one side)\(^3\)

Then: **volume** \(=\) (one side)\(^3=(4)^3=64\) cm\(^3\)

Use surface area formula:**surface area of cube:** \(6\) (one side)\(^2=6(4)^2=6(16)=96\) cm\(^2\)

### Cubes – Example 2:

Find the volume and surface area of this cube.

**Solution:**

Use volume formula: **volume** \(=\) (one side)\(^3\)

Then: **volume** \(=\) (one side)\(^3=(2)^3=8\) cm\(^3\)

Use surface area formula:**surface area of cube:** \(6\) (one side)\(^2=6(2)^2=6(4)=24\) cm\(^2\)
