A solid cube is easy. You measure its mass and its volume. The volume of a cube is the length of a side cubed. And then density is the mass divided by the volume.

The question is more difficult for a box where you need to measure the volume of the material that makes up the box. You need to measure the outside dimensions of the box and calculate the volume of the box - INCLUDING the hollow space inside it. Then you measure the inside dimensions and so calculate the volume of the space. The difference between these two is the volume of [the material of] the box. Again, the mass divided by the volume gives the density.

Density = Mass/Volume

Density= mass*volume if you have a wide but low volume, then the density changes. For example: you have a 10*10*10 cube. now you have a 10*10*1 cube. The first one is bigger.

If the mass of the cube is 96 g, what is the density of the cube material?

The formula for density: density = mass / volume. Volume of a cube = edge3 You could then need to find the mass of the cube and substitute the values into the density formula.

There are a number of regular solids each with a different shape. The simplest is a cube, which has a volume equal to the length of one edge cubed.
