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.
