A corporate businessman has two cubes on his office desk. Every day he arranges both cubes so that the front faces show the current day of the month.

What numbers are on the faces of the cubes to allow this?

Note: You can’t represent the day “7” with a single cube with a side that says 7 on it. You have to use both cubes all the time. So the 7th day would be “07”. posted May 20

1st cube has { 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 }
2nd cube has { 0, 1, 2, 6, 7, 8 }
Using these numbers on the 2 cubes any date can be made even without using the number 9. This is because 6 can be inverted to get 9. answer May 20

If you take a 3 X 3 X 3 Rubik cube and break it up into 27 cubes, how many cubes would have stickers on exactly 2 faces ? A cube has all its faces painted with different colours. It is cut into smaller cubes of equal sizes such that the side of the small cube is one-fourth the big cube. The number of small cubes with only one of the sides painted is-

A mathematician writes numbers on a cube. On each face the mathematician writes a positive integer. On each vertex the mathematician writes the product of its three adjacent faces.

If the sum of all vertices is 154, what is the sum of all faces?

(For clarification: a positive integer is a whole number greater than zero, such as 1, 2, 3, …)
