#### Question

A metal cube of edge 12 cm is melted and formed into three smaller cubes. If the edges of the two smaller cubes are 6 cm and 8 cm, find the edge of the third smaller cube.

#### Solution

Volume of large cube = V_1+V_2+V_3
Let the edge of the third cube be x cm
123^3 = 6^3+8^3+x^3
1728=216+512+x^3

⇒x^3=1728-728=1000

⇒x=10cm

∴Side of third side= 10cm.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
