  • math - ,

    18 times 4 times 14

  • math - ,

    I will assume you have a rectangular "box"
    area of top and bottom = 2(18)(14
    area of front and back = 2(18)(4)
    area of the two sides = 2(14)(4)

    Add them up


    Your teacher probably gave you
    2(lw) + 2(lh) + 2(wh) , which is what I did above
