visualize a 3x3x3 cube
D) the one cube in the middle will have no paint on it
C) the middle cube of each face, so 6 faces, so 6
B two faces,middle cubes joining two faces.
again , I can see 6 of those
A) wouldn't that be a corner cube?
How many of those are there?

A) How did you get 14???
look at a pair of playing dice, pick up one of them.
How many corners do you see?
Mine has 8
