One dimension of a box is increased by 7 units. Another dimension is decreased by 4 units. The third dimension remains the same. Is it possible for the resulting box to have the same volume as the original box? Why or why not?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

yes. before anything, the box has a certain volume. increasing one dimension of the box makes the volume bigger. reducing a different dimension will reduce the increased volume. So yes, the resulting box could have the same volume as the original.
