 Cube Facts Check out our cube facts and learn some interesting information about cubes, the three dimensional polyhedron shaped like a box. Find out how many edges a cube has, how many faces and vertices it has, how to work out the volume of a cube and much more. Read on and enjoy our cube facts and trivia before taking a look at all our other interesting information devoted to the wonderful world of geometry.

 A cube is a three dimensional shape that features all right angles and a height, width and depth that are all equal. A cube has 6 square faces. A cube has 8 points (vertices). A cube has 12 edges. Things that are shaped like a cube are often referred to as ‘cubic’. A cube is a special geometric shape that falls into a number of groups including platonic solids and regular hexahedrons. The surface area of a cube can be found with the following formula (where a = the length of an edge):  Surface area = 6a² In other words: Surface area = 6 * edge * edge The volume of a cube can be found with the following formula (where a = the length of an edge): Volume = a³ In other words: Volume = edge * edge * edge A cube has the largest volume of all cuboids with a certain surface area. Most dice are cube shaped, featuring the numbers 1 to 6 on the different faces. 11 different ‘nets’ can be made by folding out the 6 square faces of a cube. A square is in many ways like a cube, only in two dimensions rather than three. Now that you're an expert on cubes, try learning about other 3D polyhedron shapes.
