**Solution**:

Edge (side) of a cube \(=\) \(6 \ cm\)

Lateral surface area \(=\) \(4a^2\)

\(=\) \(4 \times 6^2\)

\(=\) \(4 \times 36\)

\(=\) \(144\)

**Lateral surface area of the Rubik's cube is**\(144 \ cm^2\).

Total surface area \(=\) \(6a^2\)

\(=\) \(6 \times 6^2\)

\(=\) \(6 \times 36\)

\(=\) \(216\)

**Total surface area of the Rubik's cube is**\(216 \ cm^2\).
