 Question 420904: what is the best estimate of the length of the side of a cube that has a surface area of 500 cm.^2Answer by algebrahouse.com(1079)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!"what is the best estimate of the length of the side of a cube that has a surface area of 500 cm.^2" A cube has 6 sides. The length of each side is the same.....x Each side has the same area......x^2 6x^2 = 500 {surface area of a cube equals 6(area of one side)} x^2 ≈ 83.33333 {divided both sides by 6} x ≈ 9.13 {took square root of both sides} 9.13 would be an estimate for the length of a side www.algebrahouse.com
