Magnetic Flux question

The magnetic flux through each of five faces of a die (singular of "dice") is given by (sigma)B = N Wb, where N (= 1 to 5) is the number of spots on the face. The flux is positive (outward) for N even and negative (inward) for N odd. What is the flux through the sixth face of the die?

I don't understand what I am doing wrong with this one. Why isn't the answer 1 Wb? Can anyone help me

Strange question, but the answer is 3 Wb(going out).

Live long and prosper.

Can you show what you did? We can't explain why you got the wrong answer without seeing your work.

Thanks,
