Q21.  Direction : A cube is painted red and all its faces and is then divided into 343 equal cubes.
How many cubes will have three faces painted ? 
1)  0 
2)  4 
3)  8 
4)  16 
5)  None of these 
Answer : 8
Explanation : Since the cube is divided into 343 equal cubes i.e. (7)3 equal cubes, assume the edge length of the cube to be 7, (a = 7). This is done using the idea of unit cubes. (A cube of edge length a unit can be divided into a^{3} unit cubes)
The number of cubes whose three face are painted is equal to the number of cubes whose three faces are visible. (Since only those faces which are visible can be painted).
Hence, the number is 8.
