I am having difficulty solving the following problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

"A cube of edge 6 cm is divided into 216 unit cubes by planes parallel to the faces of the cube. A sphere of diameter 6 cm is inscribed in the large cube so that the faces of this cube are tangent to the sphere. What is the number of complete unit cubes contained in the sphere?"

Anyone care to point me in the right direction?
