The edge length of a cube is cm, and the length, width, and height of a cuboid are cm, cm, and cm, respectively. Determine the absolute value of the difference between their lateral areas.
Step 1: Find the lateral area of the cube.
Step 2: Find the lateral area of the cuboid.
First, determine the perimeter of the base.
Then use the formula for the lateral area of a cuboid.
Step 3: Find the absolute value of the difference between the lateral areas.
