Expert Solution
To determine
The volume of the shoebox.

### Explanation of Solution

Given info: The length, width, and height of the box is 29cm , 17.8cm , 11.4cm .

Explanation:

The formula to calculate the volume of the shoebox is,

V=lwh

• V is volume of the shoebox,
• l is length of the box,
• w is the width of the box
• h is the height of the box

Substitute 29cm for l , 17.8cm for w , 11.4cm for h to find V .

V=(29cm)(17
