My son, who is in secondary school, needs to make a box with the inside dimensions of 1.25 cubic feet. It's supposed to be more in the shape of a rectangle than a square. I would like to know the equation to use to find the inside dimensions of a box if I know how many cubic feet (or inches) I need the inside to be. Thank you for your help! Paula Hi Paula, The volume of a box is It is probably easier to do this in inches. A box that is 1 foot by 1 foot by 1 foot has a volume of 1 cubic foot. Such a box is 12 inches by 12 inches by 12 inches and hence its volume is 12 12 12 = 1728 cubic inches. Thus ^{2160}/_{24 x 12} = 7.5, so it would have to be 7.5 inches high.
