**A solid cube of edge 14 cm is melted down and recasted into smaller and equal cubes each of edge 2 cm find the number of smaller cubes…**

###### Answers:

Edge of the big solid cube = 14 cm

Volume of the big solid cube = 14 x 14 x 14 cm3 = 2744 cm^{3}

Edge of the small cube = 2 cm

Volume of one small cube = 2 x 2 x 2 cm^{3} = 8 cm^{3}

Number of smaller cubes obtained = Volume of big cube/volume of one small cube

= 2744/8 = 343
