In how many different ways can you arrange three 4 X 8 tiles to form a rectangle?

• Math -

you can put them end to end, to get a rectangle
24 by 4
you can put them together along their lengths, to get
12 by 8
you can put 2 lengthwise with the third to cap them, to get a 12 by 8

The last two cases result in the same shape of rectangle but the blocks are not arranged the same way.
