## Answers ( )

The lengths of the sides of the base are 2 ft

This is because the volume is the base times the height

if you take the volume and divide it by the height than you get 4, which means the area of the base is 4

This means that when you multiply the side lengths together you should get 4 and since you know the base is a square (so both sides are the same length) the answer is 2
