    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.

    what does "12 300cm" mean? The cm is for length, not area or volume.
