Divide a large cube into 125 smaller cubes of equal size?

  1. Mar 5, 2009 #1
    Could somebody please tell me how can one divide a large cube into 125 smaller cubes of equal size? I can very well understand i can divide a large cube into 225 smaller cubes because 15*15=225. I just HAVE NO ideas. You?

    I am just guessing, but if a large cube is 5*5*5, would not that cube store 125 smal cubes on 1*1*1?

    Oh, yes, 5*5*5 would be 125. You're right. Thank you. I just forgot its a cube, not a square! :)
