#### Examples

## Differences between Cuboid and Cube

1. In cube, all the edges are of equal lengths whereas in cuboid all the edges are not of equal lengths.

2. A cube has square faces while a cuboid has rectangular faces.

3. In the cube areas of all the faces are equal whereas in cuboid areas only of the opposite faces are equal.
