Answer: 8 Corners
Try to picture a cube sitting in front of you and count the points on top, 4. The same is true for the side laying flat on the table. A total of 8 corners.

Answer: 8 Corners
Try to picture a cube sitting in front of you and count the points on top, 4. The same is true for the side laying flat on the table. A total of 8 corners.
Starting from what U just said -- as U join the 6 squares at their corners -- no more than 3 square corners can join to form a cube's corner.
Thus the 24 square corners join 3 at a time to make up only a third as many cube corners -- exactly 8 cube corners.
A cube has 8 vertices (corners, points), 12 edges (line segments), and 6 faces (planes). One formula that works for any solid with flat sides and no holes is vertices+faces-edges=2.
For me, I like to picture the cube as two squares with arms connecting them. I count up the corners on one square and multiply that by two. Since there are four corners on one square the equation you get is 4*2=8. So, your answer is 8.

Well, as is evident from the question I posted here a few days ago, I'm no math wiz, to say the least. I didn't even have algerbra in High school so, I can't articulate my thoughts in Math Jargon...At any rate, Ill give it shot. I percieve a cube as being comprised of 6 squares joined at each square's respective corners, that being 4 per square. So, with that in mind I suggest that a cube has a total of 24 corners.
