## Unscramble the Blue Letters

And as we're seeking to make something three-dimensional, we start not with a single surface, but with a volume. A slmpie volume, the cube. If we take its suaefrcs and fold them again and again and again and again, then after 16 iterations, 16 steps, we end up with 400,000 surfaces and a shape that looks, for instance, like this. And if we change where we make the folds, if we change the folding ratio, then this cube turns into this one. We can change the folding ratio again to produce this shape, or this sahpe.
## Open Cloze

And as we're seeking to make something three-dimensional, we start not with a single surface, but with a volume. A **______** volume, the cube. If we take its **________** and fold them again and again and again and again, then after 16 iterations, 16 steps, we end up with 400,000 surfaces and a shape that looks, for instance, like this. And if we change where we make the folds, if we change the folding ratio, then this cube turns into this one. We can change the folding ratio again to produce this shape, or this **_____**.
## Solution

- shape
- simple
- surfaces
