Find the max number of identical pieces obtained when a cube is cut into 8 parts. (Ans:48 ) Solution: I am using this formula: (no of cuts/3 +1) = no of pieces. But I am not getting 48, please help me.

If a cube is cut into eight parts, all eight may be identical as $2^3=8$, and that would be the maximum number of equal parts. How can you cut something into eight parts and have fortyeight identical parts?
