Solution Verified by Toppr

Correct option is A)

We need to cut a ute to 60 identical pieces

If we cut oru it become 2 identical pieces.

If we cut twice on same face it becomes 3 identical pieces.

If we cute once on one face and another on other face it becomes 4 identical pieces.

∴ general formula ⇒ number of identical pieces=(l+1)(m+1)(n+1)

(n,m,l)= no. of cut on each face

Given:- (l+1)(m+1)(n+1)=60

(l+1)(m+1)(n+1)=3×4×5

⇒(l+1)=3,m+1=4,n+1=5

⇒l=2,m=3,n=4

∴ total no. of cuts =l+m+n=3+4+2

=9

∴ minimum 9 cuts have to be made to get 60 identical pieces.

The logic follows here is:

We know, 93 = 729 Therefore,

It will have 9 × 9 cubes in a plane of cubes.

So, The number of smaller cubes has exactly two painted faces = (n - 2) × 12

⇒ (9 - 2) × 12 ⇒ 7 × 12 ⇒ **84**

Hence, the correct answer is **84.**

Additional Information

If a cube has been painted red, blue, and black on pairs of opposite faces and divide it into X parts.

1) Total number of cubes = X3

2) Cubes that have three faces painted = 8 (Because there are only 8 corners in the cube)

3) Cubes which has only two faces painted = (X - 2) × No of Edges (12)

4) Cubes that have only one face painted = (X - 2)2 × 6

5) Cubes that have no face painted = (X - 2)3
