Aim

My aim is to find out different formulas for the number of ‘hidden faces’, including the global formula. It should consist of simple and understandable explanations with examples.

Prediction

  • I predict that I will be able to find out the global and including others
  • I also predict that there will be a good and understandable relationship with the number of hidden faces and seen faces to give me the total number of faces.

Linear Equation

Y = mx + c

Nth = mn + c

Nth = 3n

= 3n- 2

I will now use the linear rule on the results above (hidden Faces), I will see if I could find the global formula that

Conclusion

Global formula

From the information which I have put on the first few pages we can see it explains the global formula and when cubes are stacked horizontally you get the formula of 3n-2. Even it is not part of a sequence

I have also found out a formula for finding out how to find the number of hidden faces in a cube or a cuboid just by subtracting total number of faces with the number of seen faces.  

I used the following formula -

H/F = T/F – S/F

H/F = 6 (L × W × H) – [2 (W× H) +2 (L × H) + W × L]
