How do you find surface area of cube?

A cube has six faces, and if you multiply the area of a face by six, you'll get the cube's surface area. The area of a face is given by multiplying the length of an edge by itself. It's like the length times the width to find the area of a recangle, but since a square has a length that's equal to a width, it's just an edge (e) times itself or e x e or e2 for that area. Surface areacube = 6 e2 The surface area of the cube equals 6 times the square of the length of the edge. Cool eh?

Why do you think homes usually have rectangular rooms?

Because its easier to find the area of a rectangle.It's also because maybe the recangle of a room is the cheapest way.Drywall (Sheetrock) is in long straight sheets and has to be carefully broken to fitaround corners, and then back-filled with joint compound to cover the cracks/gaps.Also, it makes it a lot tougher from the architect, to the house framer, to the drywallerto the end user to figure out to to use the curved wall (can't hang a picture on it,can't throw a couch up against it, etc... So it's normally why you see them onlyin high-priced homes (Monticello) and entryways (double-curved staircase to thelobby, etc.)
