What is the volume of the box pictured below?
A rectangular prism of length 3 and 1 over 2 feet, width 3 and 1 over 8 feet, and height 4 over 5 foot is shown. 
If the width is w, and the length is x, then
w*x*(3/4) = 48
wx = 64
The only integer factors of 64 greater than 2 are 4,8,16,32
So, the base of the prism must be
4x16
Of course, if integer values are not required, any number greater than 2 will work as the width, as long as the length is 64/w. 👍
