Re: unfolded cube puzzleHi wintersolstice; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20100725 03:33:59

Re: unfolded cube puzzleThe real 27 cubes have some blue and some clear cubes. The left hand diagram doesn't show you what the faces are like but rather how many cubes in a given line are blue and how many are clear.

Re: unfolded cube puzzleWhoops. "Altogether this gives 6 x 9 bits of information about which cubes are blue and which are clear." You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei
