1. (a) two layers means 24 cans per layer.
The cans are 10 cm across, so the 46x60 dimensions of the box allow for that many cans. The height of the box will accommodate the two layers.

(b) You know the way to compute the volume of the box.
Now, just subtract 48 times the volume of a can from that amount.
