# Find the side of a cube whose surface area is 600 cm²

**Solution:**

Let the length of each side of the cube be l.

Given that, the surface area of cube = 600 cm²

We know that, the surface area of cube = 6 × (side)²

Therefore,

600 cm² = 6 × (l)²

l² = 100 cm²

l = 10 cm

Thus, the side of the cube is 10 cm.
