**Damon**, Tuesday, April 24, 2012 at 7:37pmI assume the height of 4 cm includes the cover

outside box is 6 x 5 x 4

inside it is 4 x 3 x 2

volume outside = 120

volume inside = 24 (b)

so volume wood = 120 - 24 = 96 (a)

length = 4

width = 3

depth = 2 -1 for cover = 1

so area bottom inside = 4*3 = 12

area sides = 2*4*1 = 8

area ends = 2 *3 * 1 = 6

so

12 + 8 + 6 = 26
