Unit Cubes 1 – Counting Faces

Consider the outside of cubes made out of \( 1 \times 1 \times 1 \) unit blocks, with side lengths \( n \times n \times n \), for \( n \geq 2 \), which we have painted red on the outside.

The following table shows the number of unit cubes which are colored on a given number of faces.

Cube Size3 faces red2 faces red1 face red
\( 2 \times 2 \times 2 \)800
\( 3 \times 3 \times 3 \)8126
\(4 \times 4 \times 4 \)???

What is the sum of the numbers missing from the row for the \(4 \times 4 \times 4 \) cube?
