The formula for finding the volume of a cube is

Length x Width x Height.

Since each side of a cube has the same measurement, the formula can also be stated "Side Cubed", or

Side x Side x Side.

Since the sides of the cube measure 4 inches, you would multiply to find the volume,

4 x 4 x 4,

which equals 64.

The answer when finding volume is always a cubic measurement.

The volume of a cube measuring 4 inches on all of its sides is 64 cubic inches.

The formula that is used to find the volume of a cube would be L x W x H = length x width x height. (this formula can also be applied to rectangular prisms)

So since the sides of the cubes would all be congruent to one another they are all the same length thus they all measure to  4 inches so you plug 4 into the formula like so:

4 x 4 x 4 and you will get 64 cubic inches

The formula of the area of a cube is length x width x height

so to solve just do: 4 x 4 x 4 = 64 cubic inches
