• 357 = 3 x 7 x 17 But there are infinitely many combinations of length, width, & height that produce that product.
  • If you require the dimensions of the box to be purely integers, then look at the factors of 357 = 3 x 7 x 17. The volume of a rectangular box is the product of the lengths of the box along each edge, volume = length X height X width So if we know the factors of the volume, then the side lengths are very limited. It is true that any edge may have length 1, in which case we might have a box for example of size 1 x 21 x 17, or even 1 x 1 x 357.

      It is not very likely to be 1 x 1 x 357, is it, sawdust? I am not saying it is impossible, just not very likely. :)
  • The word is "dimensions", and assuming the measurements are whole numbers it would be 3 inches by 7 inches by 17 inches.
