I assume 12 300 cm are for volume, so cubed. l x w x h=V

Assume Prime factorisation: 12 300 = Tooo long

Guess and check: NxXxY=12 300 = 123x10x10

SA=246+20+20=286.

123 is divisible by 3. 123/3=41x30x10=12 300

SA= 82+60+20=162.

30 is now divisible by 2.

30/2=15

41x15x20=12 300

SA=82+30+40=152.

I'm sorry but I won't use up my weekend on decimal calculations of an improperly stated question.

You have 41x15x20. Work on from there.
