How many sides does a cube have?



Update: September 24, 2012.
So far everyone is incorrect. 6 sides is wrong.

I'll admit I had to look this one up (you sparked my curiousity with the "everybody is wrong" update)

Here's what I found: "A cube is a 3D solid shape. A Cube has 6 square-shaped flat faces, 8 vertices and 12 edges. While defining the sides o f a 3D figure, you do not define the number of sides but the number of edges."

So ZERO sides, but 12 EDGES.

Huh. Learned something.

You might know that as an engineer and I might know that as a past design major but it's not the answer that is given as correct in academic tests given to grade schoolers nor the correct answer on SAT's. Sorry. They both say that a cube is a six sided figure. And that is what is taught in both grade schools and high schools around America.
