A net is what it looks like if you unfold the structure. Imagine that the box is made out of paper, and just folded up to be make this shape.

Can you see how this would fold up to give you the rectangular prism you had earlier? If you truly understand, you should be able to add the correct dimensions to my drawing, and you will have your answer. good luck

Does that make sense? Imagine it folding up so that it looks like the picture in the question.

12. ErinWeeks

yea so the dimensions would be 5 and 7 right?

13. Lumenaire

yes, for that part of the net. Do you think you can figure out what dimensions to put on the other lines in the net drawing?

14. ErinWeeks

15. Lumenaire

yes
