A closed box has a square base with side length L feet and height h feet. Given that the volume of the box is 39 cubic feet, express the surface area of the box in terms of L only. Need help please? Geometry 1 Answer P dilip_k · EZ as pi May 19, 2017 Answer: #=(2L^2+156/L )ft^2# Explanation: Given that the volume of the box #V=39ft^3# Again #"volume "V= "area of base"xx"height"=L^2xxh# So #h=V/L^2=39/L^2# Now surface area of the box #S=2(L^2+Lxxh+Lxxh)=2(L^2+2xxLxxh)# #=2(L^2+2xxLxx39/L^2)# #=(2L^2+156/L )ft^2# Related questions How do I determine the molecular shape of a molecule?
