A cube is a 3- dimensional figure. All the sides of a square are equal. Its base is a square.

The square surfaces are also known as faces. A cube has 6 faces.

For example, $\text{EGCDE}$ is surface and is square in shape.

Also, the edge is a line segment where two faces meet.

Here in the above figure, $\text{AB, BC, CG, EG}$ etc. are all edges in the above figure.

As, we can see, in a cube, all the faces are identical.

In a cube, there are 12 edges and the edges are of equal size.

And a corner is the joining point or meeting point of two or more edges. Corners are also known as vertices.

In a cube, three edges meet to form a point known as corner or vertex.

For example, edges $\text{CG, EG and AG}$ join to form vertex $\text{G}$ in the above figure.

There are 8 corners in a cube.

Thus, the number of corners in a cube are 8
