Solution

89

Explanation:

Pair of numbers on opposite faces of the dice = (1 - 6), (2 - 5), (3 - 4)

To get maximum on visible faces, we should have the least value on invisible faces sum of the number on visible faces on top-placed dice

= 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 = 20

Sum of numbers on visible faces on middle row dice
= (6 + 5 + 2) + (6 + 4 + 4 + 3) = 31

Sum of numbers on visible faces on bottom row dice
= (6 + 5 +2) + (6 + 1) + (6 + 5 + 3 +4) = 38

Hence, total sum = 20 + 31 + 38 = 89
