1. Let's cal the two unknown dimensions n and m, then 10nm=360 hence n*m=36

36=3*3*2*2 hence there are 5 ways to choose the dimensions.

2. Volume=L×w×h=360

L×w×10=360

L×w=36/10

L×w=36

You would have to find all the possible factors of 36
We include

1,2,3,4,6,9,12,18,36

L×w=36×1
L×w=9×4
L×w=18×2

If the L=36 ,w=1 & h=10

L×w×h=36×10×1=360✓

So what possible combination can you see? knowing that when multiplied gives you 36... If the L>w
??

3. Discovered a typo

L×w×10=360

L×w=360/10=36

But nothing changes just and error
