If I have a #3 Height of a box:
Suppose that a box has a volume of 100 cubic centimeters and that the area of the bottom of the box is 50 square centimeters. Find the height of the box.

Hint: What is the formula for the volume V of a box with height h, length L, and width w? What is the area of the base of this box? What happens if you divide...?
