Nets of three-dimensional solids

**A net for a cube**

A cube has 6 faces. There are 3 faces meeting at each vertex. Because of this the drawing below cannot be a net for a cube. There are 2 vertices with 4 faces meeting at them.

Here is a net for a cube. Make the folds 'in your head' to form a cube.
