## How to Calculate the Area and Volume of a Cube?

In order to compute the area and the volume of a cube of side $$l$$ we use the following formulas:

$\text{Area} = 6 l^2$ $\text{Volume} = l^3$

It is quite simple to compute the area and the volume of a cube when the side is given, by simply plugging the side $$l$$ in the above formulas. For example, if the side is $$l = 3$$, then we compute

$\text{Area} = 6 l^2 = 6 \cdot 3^2 = 54$ $\text{Volume} = l^3 = 3^3 = 27$

which completes the calculation of the area and volume.
