    Given a volume, how to find the height of a box?

    Hi all,

    Not sure which FORUM this should be posted to, geometry or calculus.

    Anyway, the question/problem is as below:

    ==================

    The volume of the box in cubic metres is 20 times the height in metres.

    V = 20hm^3

    Find the value of h?

    ==================

    Am very lost, how do I find the value of h?

    We can assume that the base area of the box has a value of 20 mē

    V = 20hm^3~\implies~h=\frac V{(20 m^2)}\ \text{m}

    The dimension of the result is in metres.
