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.

@All.

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

Correct me, if I am wrong.
