I'm trying to figure out how many ways are there to stack N cubes on top of each other.
Once you get a particular stack of 4 cubes let's say, the order of the cubes doesn't matter, just which sides are being shown does.
I'm generally finding 2 numbers:
1.) 6 * 24^(n-1)
2.) 3 * 24^(n-1)
Which is the correct answer, and why?
To understand the question better, you can refer to the Instant Insanity puzzle:
