# What is the volume and surface area of a tissue box with L= 9.25 W= 4.75 H= 3?

See the solution process below:

#### Explanation:

The formula for the volume of this cube is:

$V = L \times W \times H$

Substituting for $L$, $W$ and $H$ gives:

$V = 9.25 \times 4.75 \times 3$

$V = 43.9375 \times 3$

$V = 131.8125$

The formula for the surface area is:

$S = 2 \left(L \times W\right) + 2 \left(L \times H\right) + 2 \left(W \times H\right)$

Substituting for $L$, $W$ and $H$ gives:

$S = 2 \left(9.25 \times 4.75\right) + 2 \left(9.25 \times 3\right) + 2 \left(4.75 \times 3\right)$

$S = \left(2 \times 43.9375\right) + \left(2 \times 27.75\right) + \left(2 \times 14.25\right)$

$S = 87.875 + 55.5 + 28.5$

$S = 143.375 + 28.5$

$S = 171.875$
