The width of a rectangular prism is w centimeters. The height is 2 centimers less than the width. The length is 4 centimeters more than the width. If the volume of the prism is 8 times the measure of the length, find the dimensioon of the prism.

  • math -

    V = Lwh
    w = width
    w - 2 = height
    w + 4 = length
    8(w + 4) = V

    8(w + 4) = w(w - 2)(w + 4)

    Solve for w

  • math -

    -2

  • math -

    w=2
