A rectangular shipping container that the Food Bank uses to store their tinned food, has a volume of 2500 cm3. The container is 4 times as wide as it is deep, and 5cm taller than it is wide. What are the dimensions of the container

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

(x)(4x)(4x+5)

= 4x^3 + 20x^2 .

Usually when it asks for dimensions it wants the roots, However i went from factored to expanded, so wth am i supposed to do? cant use bionomial theorem b/c already know the facotred form, etc.

Help?
