it is quite simple, and i understand both volume and surface area, however i am clueless on how to determine these both together...

Consider a cube of side 6 cm length : volume of cube = a^3 = 6^3 = 216 cm^3

also consider a cuboid of Length 4cm, width 6cm and height 9 cm ... Volume = 4*6*9 =216 cm^3

Volume of both solids are same  216 cm^3

now surface area of Cube = 6a^2 = 6*6^2 = 216 cm^2

Surface area of Cuboid = 2*(L*W+W*H+L*H) = 2*(4*6+6*9+4*9) = 228 cm^2 

But the surface area is different
