32 Cubic Block has to be removed to construct a solid cubic

As If a cube of 3 Blocks has to be made we need 27 blocks. and for cube of 4 blocks we need 64 Blocks,

So as we can make the solid cubic of 3 for which in total we need only 27 blocks.

So 59 - 27 = 32 Blocks has to be removed

We call a positive integer a "good number", if the product of all its divisors equals its cube.

For example, 12 is a good number, because the divisors of 12 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12, and 1*2*3*4*6*12=1728=12^3.

If n is a good number, what is the minimum number of divisors that n^2 has?
