    Surface area of a cuboid = 2hw + 2hl + 2lw (where h is height, l is length and w is width).

    If you know all of the variables except height, then you can re-arrange the equation or, more simply, input the numbers you do know and start moving numbers across the equals, if that makes sense.

    Ya that makes sense, thanks. so it is nearly like an algebra equation where when you swap things over they become the opposite?
