- Two sides measuring 5 cm x 4 cm are coloured in red.
- Two faces measuring 4 cm x 3 cm are coloured in blue.
- Two faces measuring 5 cm x 3 cm are coloured in green.
- Now the block is divided into small cubes of side 1 cm each.

@All.

I think it should be 12 then because inside we have uncolored 6x2 cubes.

Correct me, if I am wrong.

Its very easy.

No face colour formula (x-2)^3 this formula use only same cube value. But now we have L = 4, b = 3, c = 5.

So we have use (L-2)*(b-2)*(c-2).

Then apply the value (4-2)*(3-2)*(5-2) = 2*1*3 = 6.
