A box, in the shape of a rectangular solid, has a length of 12, a width of 8, and a height of 8. What is the length, along the outside surface of the box, of the shortest path that can be drawn between two of the vertices of the box which do not lie in the same face of the box?

To NOT be on the same face. the vertices have to be on the diagonal.....

you will have to travel 12 + 8 + 8 to reach a non planar vertice....
