# Imagination got no boundaries

Geometry Level 3

I had a red cube like this

I took $$26$$ more such cube(red from all sides) and joined them to form a bigger cube$$(3×3×3=27) red cubes$$. And painted it blue from all of its six sides from the outside, like this.
Now , I took $$26$$ more such cubes (with each cube having ($$3×3×3$$) red cubes painted blue from outside), and joined them to form a much bigger cube$$(9×9×9=729 cubes)$$ and painted it Green from all its six sides from the outside like this:

How many smaller cubes $$the$$ $$one$$ $$that$$ $$I$$ $$had$$ $$at$$ $$the$$ $$starting$$ are painted red on $$3$$ sides and blue on the other $$3$$ sides?
