A Cuboid is a 3d shape with edges of different lengths. All of its faces are rectangular or square. A cube is a special type of cuboid with edges of equal lengths. All of it faces are square. A cuboid has 6 faces, it has 12 edges and 8 vertices. The difference between a rectangle and a cuboid is that one is a 2d shape and the other is a 3d shape. We measure area for a 2d shape while we measure volume for a 3d shape. Volume of a cuboid = L x W x H, Where L = length , W = width , H = height.
USING VOLUME AND MEASUREMENT TO DESCRIBE CUBOIDS
The amount of space a cuboid takes up is called its volume. Volume is measured in cubic units. Volume of cuboid = L x W x H , Surface Area of a cuboid = 2 ( LW + HW + LH ) , Where L = length, W = width, H = height .
Symmetry in a figure exist if there is a reflection, rotation or translation that can be performed and the image is identical. Reflectional symmetry exists when the figure can be folded over onto itself along a line. This line is called the "Line of symmetry".
