how do i found the the height

The volume of a rectangular box is (x^3+6x^2+11x6). The

box is (x+3) cm long and (x+2) cm wide. How high is the box?

May I also add that this is in the long division section of the text book so i am assuming i will have to apply long division in it somewhere, i actually do not understand where to start, I am not looking for an answer, just ways that i can tackle the problem. thank you.

Divide the volume by (x+3).

You should get a reminder of zero.

Take the quotient and divide by (x+2) .

You should get a reminder of zero.

That quotient is the height.
