Hi there! Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The number of the boxes is given by taking the size of the room and dividing by the size of the box. You can use any dimension:

Length: 5m/ 10cm = 500 cm/ 10 cm = 50 boxes

Width: 3m/6cm = 300 cm / 6 cm = 50 boxes

Height 2m / 4cm = 200 cm / 4cm = 50 boxes

So the answer is 50 boxes


Please let me know if you need any clarification. Always glad to help!
