I want to start out by saying that I hate math. Math has always given me a problem. That is until I found this website- www.themathmom.com. I have completely fallen in love with math. I have overcome my fear and I am getting better and better. So, can you solve this problem?

How many premium pieces without any wax will he get? How many cubes with one waxy side, two sides and three sides?
