Required number of cubes = (12 - 2) (11 - 2) (9 - 2) = 10 9 7 = 630 (79-81): From the given information we deduce red face is opposite to white face, yellow face is opposite to green face, and brown face is opposite to blue face. 79. 2 80. 2 81. 3; If yellow face is at the top then green will be at the bottom because yellow face and green face are opposite to each other.

If both occur twice, then the identical cubes look like:

But in this case duplicate faces cannot occur at the arrows, contradicting (2). So either only occurs twice or only occurs twice. If only occurs twice, then the identical cubes look like this:

But in this case duplicate faces cannot occur at the arrows, contradicting (2). So only occurs twice and the identical cubes look like this:

In this the occurs on the right cube at the arrow #2. So, from (2), the occurs on the left cube at the arrow # 1. Thus is on the faces indicated by the arrows. (The occurs on the unmarked face in the last diagram.) 131. (ii); Case I:
L1 A C E F D B G

No. of cubes in each layer = 6(A, B, C, D, E and F) No. of cuboids in each layer = [ , G, (A + B), (C + D), (E + F) (A + C), (B + D), (C + E), (D + F), (A + C + E), (B + D + F), {(A + C + E) + (B + D + F)} {(B + D + F) + G}, {(A + B) + (C + D), {C + D) + (E + F)}] = 15 Hence the four layers have = (6 4 =) 24 cubes and (15 4 =) 60 cuboids, Case II: Now, consider two layers together:

Cuboid

Except the dotted part no combination will give any desired shape. Now, consider the dotted part
H A C D G E F B S

No. of cubes = 1(S) No. of cuboids = [C + D + E + F), (A + B + G + H), (D + B + F + G), (A + C + E + H)] = 4 Now, it can be concluded that for each pair of two layers there are (1 3 =) 3 cubes and (4 3 =) 12 cuboids [As 3 pairs of two layers can be made.]. Case III. When three layers are considered together.

Cuboid

Only 3 cuboids (1 itself + 2 cuboids, each made of three 3 cubes) is present here. Only two cuboids, considering of three layers is possible. Hence 3 2 = 6 cuboids. Now, case I + II + III, we get (60 + 12 + 6 = ) 78 cuboids and (24 + 3 =) 27 cubes.
