Hi fractal,

Is this your box? If so, it looks like a right prism with isosceles trapezoidal bases. Easy to find the volume if that's the case. And I'm confused about the box length. Is it the lateral length or the perpendicular distance between the two trapezoidal bases? - Mar 5th 2009, 02:06 PMHallsofIvy
