For cube:

One face coloured= 6*(n-2)^2.

= 6*(n-2)*(n-2).

Similarly for CUBOID (4*3*5):

One face coloured = 2*(L-2)*(B-2)+2*(B-2)*(H-2)+2*(H-2)*(L-2).

=2*(4-2)*(3-2)+2*(3-2)*(5-2)+2*(5-2)*(4-2).

= 2*2*1 + 2*1*3 + 2*3*2.

= 4 + 6 + 12.

= 22 ANSWER.

One face coloured= 6*(n-2)^2.

= 6*(n-2)*(n-2).

Similarly for CUBOID (4*3*5):

One face coloured = 2*(L-2)*(B-2)+2*(B-2)*(H-2)+2*(H-2)*(L-2).

=2*(4-2)*(3-2)+2*(3-2)*(5-2)+2*(5-2)*(4-2).

= 2*2*1 + 2*1*3 + 2*3*2.

= 4 + 6 + 12.

= 22 ANSWER.

@All.

It has to be 24.

10 on top + 10 on bottom + 4 on the sides = 24.

It has to be 24.

10 on top + 10 on bottom + 4 on the sides = 24.
