Q:

# How many edges does a cube have?

A:

A cube has 12 edges, 24 angles, eight vertices and six faces. A cube is a regular solid made up of six equal squares. Additionally, all angles within the cube are right angles and all sides are the same length.

The surface area of a cube is determined by finding the area of one square by multiplying its length times its width, or by squaring the length of one side, and then multiplying that product by six for each one of the squares. Finding the volume of the cube requires multiplying its length times its width times its height or by cubing the length of one side.

The surface area of a cube can be found by finding the length of any of the cube's edges, then multiplying that length by itself, then multiplying its product by six. This equation can be written as A=6e^2, where e stands for the length of any of the cube's edges.

A cube has a total of eight vertices, despite having six square faces that would all have four vertices of their own if pulled apart. A cube has six square faces that are joined not only at the sides, but at the vertices, essentially resulting in two squares that are joined by four lines, one at each corner.
