    Geometry

    Given a box with coordinates:

    BOTTOM:

    A (1,3,4)
    B (8,3,4)
    C (8,3,10)
    D (1,3,10)

    TOP:

    E (1,7,4)
    F (8,7,4)
    G (8,7,10)
    H (1,7,10)

    Determine the width of the box in the x direction, its tallness in the y direction and its depth in the z direction.

    I said it'd be 7 units long in the x direction, 4 in the y and 6 in the z. Is this right? I just took the highest of each and subtracted the lowest of each (respective to the coordinates).

    Ok so I tried plotting this in Maple. But, is it with pointplot3d([1,7,4], [8,7,4], ...]) etc? I think my answers are right but I wanted to make sure
