How many corner does a cube have in 4 dimensions? How many 3D faces? Now by observation we can tell that, an n-dimensional cube has $2^n$ corners. 1D cube which is a line have $2^1$ corners 2D cube which is a square have $2^2$ corners 3D cube have $2^3$ corners ... 8 three-dimension cubes. but this is the question i'm not able to answer. How every N-cube have $|2n|$ cubes of dimension (N-1)?
