You would get quicker answers if you would label your subject correctly. There are many math teachers who could have helped if they had seen the subject.

In this case, you need to specify which of the three pairs of surfaces have the specified area. That would allow you to determine the width dimension perpendicular to those surfaces.

You cannot determine all three dimensions of a rectangular prism unless it has a square cross section. There are more unknowns than you have equations.
