# Calculate the surface area of a cube of edge 4 cm. What is the volume?

The volume of a cube can be easily calculated by just using the length of the edge of the cube.

## Answer: The surface area of the cube is 96 cm^{2} and the volume of the cube is 64 cm^{3}.

Let's calculate the surface area of a cube of edge 4 cm and its volume.

**Explanation:**

Given: Edge of the cube, a = 4 cm

Surface area of the cube = 6a^{2}

= 6 ×(4)^{2}

= 6 × 16

= 96 cm^{2}

Volume of the cube = a^{3}

= 4^{3}

= 64 cm^{3}
