  2. Hmm, the second one is quite simple, i will walk you through what you need to do:
    There are 3 large boxes
    There are 2 medium boxes in each large box.
    Sense there are 3 large boxes and each box has 2, you could multiply 3x2 and get 6.
    So far all together, there are 6 boxes.
    In each meduim box there are 5 small boxes.
    You could then multiply 6x5 and get a total of 30 boxes.
    Hope this helped!
