Two cubes of volumes \(27 \ \text{cm}^3\) and \(64 \ \text{cm}^3\) are glued together at their faces to form a solid with the smallest possible surface area. What is the number of square centimeters in the surface area of the resulting solid?

cube 1  3 x 3 x 3      

cube 2  4 x 4 x 4

 

One 3x3 face will be gone (covered)  as will a  3x3 area on one of the faces of the larger cube

 

3x3   x       +   4x4 x 6  - 3x3 = 45 +87=132 cm2
