Answer:

#54m^2#

Explanation:

Since it's a "cube", all sides must be equal. Therefore, the length of one side is equal to the cube root of the volume.
#root(3)27=3#
An area of one surface is equal to #3^2 = 9#
Since the area of all surfaces are equal, we can assume that the surface area of this cube is #9*6#, because there are 6 surfaces on a cube
#9*6=54#
