### What is Meant by the Surface Area of a Cube?

In mathematics, a cube is a three-dimensional solid figure. A cube has six faces, eight vertices, and 12 edges. The surface area of a cube is defined as the space occupied by the shape in the 3D plane. Since the face of the cube is in the form of a square, and a cube has 6 faces, then the surface area of the cube is given by the formula,

The surface area of a cube = 6a2 square units

Where “a” is the edge of the cube
