  • Directions: (Questions 1 to 10) A solid cube of each side 8 cm, has been painted red, blue and black on pairs of opposite faces.
    It is then cut into cubical blocks of each side 2 cm.

     

1.

How many cubes have no face painted? 

   A.) 0
   B.) 4
   C.) 8
   D.) 12

Answer: Option 'C'

Cubes have only one face painted = Central cubes : In middle of faces & has only one coloured side.
We can find out the total number of cubes with singe color on any side with this formula: 6(X-2)2
Implementation of formula: X = 4
6(4-2)2 = 6(2)2 = 24

How many cubes have only two faces painted? 

   A.) 8
   B.) 16
   C.) 24

How many cubes have only three faces painted? 

   A.) 0
   B.) 4
   C.) 6
   D.) 8
