    For the show that would you not multiply the three given dimensions to make it equal to 924 then take that from both sides to make it =0

    so to get the volume of a cuboid you multiply the length, width & height...

    here 4*(x + 1)*(x + 11)

    we are told it equals 924...

    4(x + 1)(x + 11) = 924

    now you can divide through by 4

    (x + 1)(x + 11) = 231

    then multiply out the brackets & make sure there is a zero on the right hand side.

    after that it is just factorising and solving in the usual way.
