Sure! i could try
ight thx
@ghazi is right the surface area which is 2 (lh) + 2(lw) + 2(wh) Length= 10 Width= 8 and Height= 5 so you do 2 times 10 times 8 plus 2 times 10 times 5 plus 2 times 8 times 5
then you should be able to multiply those and get your answer
So... 2 times 10 is 20 times 8 is 160 plus 2 times 10 is 20 times 5 is 100 plus 2 times 8 is 16 times 5 is 80
160 plus 100 plus 80 is 340
\[boxes=\frac{ 20,000 }{[ 2(10*8)+2(10*5)+2(8*5) ]}=\frac{ 20,000 }{ 340 }=58.82\]
therefore approximately there are 59 boxes , or 58
ohhhhh okay i get it
is that right @ghazi
\[boxes=\frac{ given A }{ calculated (surfaceA)}\] yes thats right
i agree with ghazi
A--> area
u good now Selena
