Substitute 4d for e in second equation and solve for d. Insert that value into the first equation and solve for e. Check by inserting both values into the second equation.

The following areas are equal:

1. Front and Back.

2. Left and right.

3. Top and Bottom.

Therefore, we calculate 3 areas and

multiply each by 2 to get the 6 areas:

As=2(3*h) + 2(10*h) + 2(10*3)=1901n^2.

6h + 20h + 60 = 190,

26h = 190 - 60 = 130,

h = 5in.
