Cube Cuts


after Martin Gardner

Home / Puzzle Playground / Puzzles / Math 'n' Logic /

A cube, three units on a side, has to be cut into 27 one-unit cubes. It can be done quite easily by making six cuts through the cube, keeping the pieces together in the cube shape.

The question is whether this number of necessary cuts can be reduced by arranging the pieces after each cut?
