**bobpursley**, Tuesday, July 22, 2014 at 6:33pmSo, consider just one face of the cubes, they have to be glued. If the smaller is put smack dab, consider that the standard surface area. The exposed surface area on that glued face only is

exposed=9-4=5

But what if the dont overlap exactly, one hangs over the side of the other.

let x be the overhang.

surface area on the joined surface of the smaller cube is 2x

and the surface area on the joined surface of the larger cube is 9-(2-x)2

total= 2x+9-4+2x=5+4x so the minumum surface area on that surface will be 5

total surface of this configuration:

5+5*9+5*4=70sqr units

check my thinking

area of 2x2x2 cube is 6*4=24

If not joined, total area is 78

The maximum concealed surface area is an entire face of the 2-cube, on both solids: 2*4 = 8

So, the minimum exposed area would be 78-8 = 70
