Geometry help please
Malcolm bought a square sheet of paper of side 16 inches to decorate a pencil box he made in craft class. The pencil box has a height of 7 inches, a width of 4 inches, and a length of 5 inches.
Approximately how many square inches of paper will be remaining if he pastes paper on to the bottom base and the four side surfaces of the pencil box without any overlap?
