  6. If the surface area of a cube is 486 ft.2, find the length of each edge.
  7. Working backward, find the missing edge length using the given information.

  8. If the surface area of a cube is 726 in.2, find the length of one of its edges.
  9. If the surface area of a cube is 73.5 ft.2, find the perimeter of its front face.
  10. Use the following information to answer questions 29 and 30.

    Susie bought a blender that came in a rectangular prism box with edges measuring 8 in., 12 in., and 18 in. She needs to wrap it as a gift and wants to use her blue wrapping paper, which measures 9 in. × 100 in. If she doesn't have enough blue, she will use her green paper, which is 12 in. × 80 in. If she doesn't have enough green, she will use her yellow paper, of which she has an endless supply. (Assume that there's no need for the edges of the wrapping paper to overlap; Susie simply needs to cover the entire box.)

  11. How many square inches of wrapping paper will Susie need to cover the blender box?
  12. What color paper will Susie use?
