In this problem, we are asked to **determine how many 1-cm cubes** are there in a cube with an **edge of 8 cm**.

Recall that the **volume of a cube** is calculated using the following equation:

$\overline{){{\mathbf{V}}}_{{\mathbf{cube}}}{\mathbf{=}}{{\mathbf{a}}}^{{\mathbf{3}}}}$

A cube has an edge length of 8 cm.

If it is divided into 1-cm cubes, how many 1-cm cubes are there?
