Nets for Geometric Solids
A net of a geometric solid is a two-dimensional (planar) figure that can be folded into a geometric solid. For example, we know that a cube has six sides. Each side of a cube is a square. So if we arrange six squares into a figure that can be folded into a cube, we have a net for a cube.
Here are a few examples of nets of cubes:
However, not every figure of six squares can be folded into a cube. Here
are some figures that are not nets of cubes:
