An Egyptian Mummy stands upright in a case that is 3.5m high, and has a colume of 14m^3. The width of the case is half the length. What are the length and width of the case?

Please leave an explanation

Thanks!~~~

  • Math -

    Volume = L B H
    but B = L/2
    so
    Volume = L (L/2) H
    14 = L^2 * 3.5/2
    L^2 = 28/3.5
    take the square root
