2003 AMC 8 Problems/Problem 1

Problem

Jamie counted the number of edges of a cube, Jimmy counted the numbers of corners, and Judy counted the number of faces. They then added the three numbers. What was the resulting sum?

$\mathrm{(A)}\ 12 \qquad\mathrm{(B)}\ 16 \qquad\mathrm{(C)}\ 20 \qquad\mathrm{(D)}\ 22 \qquad\mathrm{(E)}\ 26$

Solution

On a cube, there are $12$ edges, $8$ corners, and $6$ faces. Adding them up gets $12+8+6= \boxed{\mathrm{(E)}\ 26}$.
