# Wire Cube riddle

Say you have some bendable wires (any number, any length). What is the minimum number of solder connections needed to make a cube? Prove it. Also, what is the minimum number of wires necessary? Prove it.

SherlockHolmes Expert Asked on 17th November 2018 in

There are 8 corners. Every corner is a join of 3 wires. Two of those can formed by bending a wire but the third one must be soldered.
So there need to be 8 solder connections.

To form the cube you need 4 wires. (No prove)
