Homework Help: Express the surface area of a cube

  1. May 13, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Express the surface area of a cube as a function of its volume.

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

    3. 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?
