## Step 1: Case a: Edge length is 1

Using the formula for the surface area of a cube, we get: Surface Area = 6 * (edge length)^2 Edge length = 1 So, Surface Area = 6 * (1)^2 = 6 * 1 = 6 square units. The surface area of the cube with edge length 1 is 6 square units.

## Step 2: Case b: Edge length is 2

Using the formula for the surface area of a cube, we get: Surface Area = 6 * (edge length)^2 Edge length = 2 So, Surface Area = 6 * (2)^2 = 6 * 4 = 24 square units. The surface area of the cube with edge length 2 is 24 square units.
