Diagonal is the line joining opposite corners of a geometrical shape.
Observe the corners of the square.
The line joining opposite corners of a square is called the diagonal of the square.
A square has two diagonals.
Diagonals of a cube:
A Cube has six square faces. Each square has two diagonals.
Diagonals in the faces = 6 × 2 = 12.
Diagonals in the inner sides of 4 corners = 4.
Total number of diagonals of a cube = 12 + 4 = 16.
Draw the diagonals for the given rectangle.
How many diagonals will be there in a cuboid? 16 .
