Minimum and maximum surface areas of a cube are found.

I need to find the maximum and minimum surface areas for 2 cubes with a total volume of 432 in^3. No other perameters are specified. I've been able to use common sense to find the max is 432 sq/inches (two 6"^3 cubes) and min is 343.051 sq (one 7.5595"^3 cube and one cube of 0.171"^3). I need help with the equations for the maxi
