A cube with a volume of one cubic centimeter (1 cc) has equal sides of 1 centimeter squared with a total surface area of 6 square centimeters (= 6 cm2 or 600 mm2). Dividing the same volume into 1000 cubic millimeter units would lead to a total surface area of ? A. 6 cm2 B. 6 mm2 C. 60 cm2 D. 60 mm2 E. 600 cm2 The right answer is 60 cm2. I don't know how to derive this answer. When I work it out I get 6cm2. This is because one cubic centimeter (1 cc) / 1000 cubic millimeter units = 1cm3/1000cm3 = 1 and to get the surface area, multiply by 6. What am I doing wrong, anyone know how to get the right answer?
