Imagine picking up a cube with your thumb placed at one corner of the cube and your finger at the furthest corner on the other side of the cube. Now cut the cube exactly down the middle between your finger and thumb. You have two pieces each with a new face. What is the shape of that new face? can you draw it?

OpenStudy (moongazer):

what was that?

OpenStudy (moongazer):

the answer is hexagonal

OpenStudy (anonymous):

how

OpenStudy (moongazer):

A hexagon. You cut through all the 6 faces of the cube. Each face contributes an edge to the shape.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

no, you get a prism

OpenStudy (anonymous):

a triangular prism, to be accurate

OpenStudy (anonymous):

now that i think about it, it actually depends on how you cut it. you can get a hexagon too

OpenStudy (moongazer):

i don 't know how to explain that, you've to figure it out by construction, because it's difficult to see it (and i try to draw it but ... X) )
