# What could be the Lateral Surface Area of a cube of side 1 cm?

A cube is a 3-dimensional figure with six flat faces, 8 edges, and 12 vertices. The Lateral Surface Area of a cube is the sum of areas of its 4 sides excluding the bottom and top.

## Answer: The Lateral Surface Area of a cube of side 1 cm is 4 square cm.

Let's find the LSA of the cube.

**Explanation:**

Given side = 1 cm.

The formula to calculate the LSA of the cube is 4x^{2} where x is the edge length of the cube.

LSA (Lateral Surface Area) = 4 × (1 cm)^{2}

LSA = 4 cm^{2}
