Anthony is building a cube-shaped box to store some of his smaller crafting supplies. The formula for the surface area of a cube is SA=6s2, where s is the side length of the cube. If he has a total of 200 in.2 of cardboard, can Anthony build a box where s=6 in.?

No, he needs 16 in.2 more cardboard.

No, he needs 232 in.2 more cardboard.

Yes, he will have 56 in.2 of cardboard left over.

Yes, he will have 128 in.2 of cardboard left over


  1. Answer:
    No, he needs 16 inches^2 more cardboard.
    Step-by-step explanation:
    Take the formula and substitute values into it. 6 * 6^2
    Do the exponent first to get 6 * 36, and then complete that to get 216. Since he has 200 inches of cardboard and he would need 216, that means he would need 16 more square inches to make his cube.
