# Cube Area

## Area

Area is a numerical characteristic of a two-dimensional (flat or curved) geometric figure, informally speaking, showing the size of this figure. Historically, the calculation of the area was called quadrature. A figure having an area is called quadratic. Find the area of more than 22 shapes (triangle, square, pentagon, etc.) using our amazing calculator.

## Cube

Cube — or regular hexahedron is a regular polyhedron, in which all faces are squares. A cube is a specific case of a box and prism.

## Cube Area

Each face of the cube is a square whose area is S = a². The side surface of the cube consists of 4 faces, and the full surface includes two more bases in the form of the same squares. Therefore, to find the area of the side surface of the cube, we multiply the area of this square by 4, and to find the area of its full surface by 6 as mentioned in the above formula.
