  1. 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.
