  1. Calculate the surface area of a cube with a side of length 4 cm?


    Step 1 :  

    Given side length = 4cm



    Step 2 :  

    Surface area of a cube = 6a2
    Surface area of a cube = 6(4cm)2
    Surface area of a cube = 6(16cm2)
    Surface area of a cube = 96 cm2



    Answer  :  

    96 cm2



  2. Calculate the surface area of a cube with a side of length 6 cm?


    Step 1 :  

    Given side length = 6cm



    Step 2 :  

    Surface area of a cube = 6a2
    Surface area of a cube = 6(6cm)2
    Surface area of a cube = 6(36cm2)
    Surface area of a cube = 216 cm2



    Answer  :  

    216 cm2
