Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Volume = length x width x height If you have a known volume, length, and height; then you would solve for width. So... Width = V / (LH) \[w=(x^3+9x^2+6x16)/[(x+2)(x+8)]=(x^3+9x^2+6x16)/(x^2+10x+6)\] I use long division (I can't show that on here, so I'll leave that to you). The width should be x  1. You can check by multiplying LWH to see if you get V.
