Can you figure out this puzzle?

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?

Store receives a cube of cheese, each side is 40 inches long. Cube is covered with a thick layer of wax. Cheese seller needs to cut this cube into little cubes, each with 10 inch sides. How many premium pieces without any wax will he get? How many cubes with one waxy side, two sides and three sides?
