The least amount of wrapping paper needed is the surface area of the cube.


A cube has six square faces, and each face is the same size.  So...


surface area of cube  =  6(area of square face)

                                                                            And  area of square face  =  (side length)2

surface area of cube  =  6(side length)2


The problem tells us that the cube is 11 cm long, so the  side length  =  11 cm


surface area of cube  =  6( 11 cm )2


surface area of cube  =  6( 121 cm2 )


surface area of cube  =  726 cm2


least amount of wrapping paper needed  =  726 cm2
