Homework Statement


Express the surface area of a cube as a function of its volume.


Homework Equations


Cubic Volume=Length x Width x Height (V=Length of side^3)
Cubic Surface Area= (Length of side^2)x6

The Attempt at a Solution


f(V)=(X^3/X) x 6........sorry, I don't know if I'm on the right track, as there are no given examples similar to this in my text.

Maybe solve V=L^3 for L in terms of V and then substitute into A=6*L^2?
