Suppose you plan to make a box that will hold exactly 40 one-inch cubes.

what are some demensions of all the possible boxes you can make?

I thought of 2 but i can't think of anymore. Here's what I have, are they right?

L= 10 W= 2 H= 2

L= 5 W= 4 H= 2

Can you please think of more/

Please help!
thank you!
