They are saying :

height + base 1 + base 2 + base 3 + base 4 has to be equal to or less than 110 inches.

You're right because there are 4 lines in the perimeter of the base. If you draw a square or rectangle, it has four lines.

2 of those lines are 15 inches. 15x2 = 30.

The height is 20.

30+20 = 50

So you have 60 inches to play with. They did not tell you the length of the luggage, but on that square, the length takes up 2 sides of the square. So 60 inches left over divided by the 2 sides of the rectangle left over = 30 inches per side.

Nice work!
