# How many 1-cm cubes would it take to construct a cube that is 3 cm on edge?

**Solution:**

The volume of a cube formula is

V = side × side × side

V = side^{3}

Volume of cube of edge 1 cm = 1 cm^{3}

Volume of cube of edge 3 cm = 3^{3} = 27 cm^{3}

It would take 27 cubes of edge 1 cm to make a cube of 3 cm.

Therefore, it would take 27 cubes of edge 1 cm to construct a cube that is 3 cm on edge.

## How many 1-cm cubes would it take to construct a cube that is 3 cm on edge?

**Summary:**

It would take 27 cubes of 1 cm to construct a cube that is 3 cm on edge.
