Answer:Step-by-step explanation:Given:

Volume of square prism = 810 cubic inches

Height of square prism = 10 inches

The volume of a square prism has this formula:

v = a²h

a = side length of the square prism

h = height

810 in³ = a² * 10in

810 in³ ÷ 10 in = a²

81 in² = a²

√81 in² = √a²

9 in = a

The length of each side of the base is 9 inches. Only 5 sides of the cardboard box has a cardboard because the 6th side is open.
