I am 99.5% sure I've got it right, but I keep second-guessing myself.

1] Cube with sides of length X.

2] Diagonals out from each corner of length no less than X...

3] ...to an outer cube of sides of length Y.

What must be the (shortest) length of Y in terms of X?

I get [tex] y = 2\sqrt{2}x[/tex]
