Dissection of a Cube into Five Solids
This Demonstration gives a dissection of a cube into a rhombic hexecontahedron, a rhombic triacontahedron, and three congruent rhombic solids.

DETAILS
Since the hexecontahedron and the triacontahedron can be dissected into a dodecahedron, an icosahedron, and an icosidodecahedron, the cube can be dissected into a combination of these three solids and rhombic solids.
