# Three Cubes

2. I can make an equilateral triangle by cutting off the corner of a cube.

If the area of the largest equilateral triangle I can create in this way is $140$cm$^2$, what is the side length of this cube?

3. A third cube has an edge length of $12$cm.

At each vertex, a tetrahedron with three mutually perpendicular edges of length $4$cm is cut away.

Can you find the volume and the surface area of the remaining solid?
