Cube Cutting
12 Sep 2008

Imagine a 3x3x3 wooden cube. How many cuts do we need to break it into twenty-seven 1x1x1 cubes? A cut may go through multiple wooden pieces.


Do not remember.


The central 1×1×1 cube has six faces. No cut can reveal two or more of these faces! So six cuts are necessary and sufficient.
