I don't know what you mean by the above, so I'm afraid I can't help here.
A cube has a volume of 512 cubic centimeters.If the cube is completely covered with wrapping paper, what is the minimum amount of paper needed to cover all 6 faces?
What is the formula for the volume V of a cube with side-length s? Plug the given volume value into this formula, and solve for the value of s.
What is the area of a square with side-length s = (the value you just found)?
The whole surface area is the area of this square (being one side or "face" of the cube), times the number of sides on the cube.
