Answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(15652)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!A box is 720 cubic centimeters. The height of the box is five centimeters and width is w centimeters. If the length of the box is four times the width, what will be the width in centimeters of the box? : The volume equation L * W * H = 750 : L * W * 5 = 750 : 5LW = 750 LW = LW = 150 : "the length of the box is four times the width" L = 4W : Replace L with 4W W*4W = 150 4W^2 = 150 W^2 = W^2 = 37.5 W = W = 6.1237 cm is the width : : See if that is true, check on a calc: 4(6.1237) * 6.1237 * 5 = 749.997 ~ 750
