Math

Please help me with this..I am very puzzled.

Josh is building a wooden box for a darkling beetle habitat. If the area of the bottom of the
box is 576 cm2 and the shortest side is longer than 10 cm, what are all the possible length
and width combinations? Note: Josh measures the sides of his habitat box in whole
numbers, not fractions.

Like what am I supposed to do here when they say "longer than 10 sides" .. I mean that could be literally any number above 10. SO do they expect us to list ALL the possible combinations? And I don't understand this problem in general.

And then they ask this question to confuse me even more:
When Josh completes the box, the sides are 12 cm high. How much soil will it hold?

  1. It couldn't be "any" number above 10.

    I started with the square root of 576 = 24

    What numbers between 10 and 24 go evenly into 576?

    Well -- to start -- 576/12 = 48

    What other numbers between 12 and 24 go evenly into 576?
