# Formulas For Dices

## Formulas For Dices & Types of Dices

Usually, there are two types of dices that are:

1. Base Dice
2. Open Dice

(Note:- Since generally questions on Base Dices, are being asked in the exams. Hence we shall be discussing them in detail in the tips and tricks page.)

Open Dice : In an open dice all the six faces of the dice are shown. The dices show the opposite position of rows and columns.

### Constructed and Deconstructed Dice:

Constructed dice: This section of dice gives the constructed version of dice, the questions will be based on the visualization of the flattened-out version of dice.

Deconstructed Dice: This section of dice gives the flattened-out version of dice, the questions will be based on the visualization of what is at the other end of the constructed dice.

### All its six faces are shown in the mentioned diagram:

Specifically, the six faces are:

1. PQRU
2. RUST
3. STWV
4. WVPQ
5. SUPV
6. STRU

There are certain relevant facts which should always be remembered while solving the Dice reasoning questions which are mentioned below:

• It has six square shaped sides having equal length and width.
• It has 8 points.
• It has 12 boundaries or edges.
• One can only view three sides of a cube at one point of time which are commonly known as “joint sides.”
• The above figure makes it evident that the two opposite faces cannot be adjacent to each other.

For example: from the above figure, we can see that face PQRU and STWV are opposite to each other, but they can never be adjacent to one another.
