I'm only in the 6th grade I don't understand this.

**Steve**, Sunday, March 3, 2013 at 2:23pmThe box has 6 faces

top and bottom at 24x12

two ends at 12x10

two sides at 24x10

The total area of cardboard needed then is

2*24*12 + 2*12*10 + 2*24*10 = 1296 in^2

Elaine has to pay 1/2 cent per in^2, or $6.48

SO, you need to suggest a price at least that high, so she can make some profit when she sells the box. That would depend on how much her expenses are just for running the store, and how much of her inventory consists of these boxes.
