    h = l + 4

    Assume a box, but the two shelves will not necessarily be at the top and bottom of the box. Find the perimeter.

    2h + 2l = 20

    Substitute l + 4 for h in the second equation and solve for l. Put that value in the first equation to find h. Check by putting both values into the second equation.
