Answer:

Well, #"volume"-=(4.23*cm)^3#...i.e. the CUBE of the edge length...

Explanation:

Given the terms of the question, I suspect they wanted the MASS of the cube....

#"Volume"=75.7*cm^3#

And given that #rho_"density"="Mass"/"Volume"#

And thus we got...….

#"mass"="volume"xxrho_"Au"=75.7*cm^3xx19.3*g*cm^-3=1460.8*g.#

The current price of gold is...#41-86*"USD"*g^-1#..what is your nugget worth...
