Let C denote the cube $[-1, 1]^3 \subset \mathbb{R}$  . How many rotations are there in $\mathbb{R}^3$ which take C to itself?

A. 6; B. 12 C. 18. D. 24

Discussion:

Theorem: A finite subgroup of $SO_3$ is one of the following groups:

• $C_k$ : the cyclic group of rotations by multiples of $\frac {2 \pi } {k}$ about a line, with k arbitrary
• $D_k$: the Dihedral group of symmetries of a regular k-gon, with k arbitrary
• $T$ the tetrahedral group of 12 rotational symmetries of a tetrahedron;
• $O$: the octahedral group of 24 rotational symmetries of a cube or an octahedron
• $I$: the icosahedral group of 60 rotational symmetries of a dodecahedron or an icosahedron
