- Boxes: Length x Width x Height (See below)
- Bags: Width x Length (The width is always the dimension of the bag opening.)
- Labels: Length x Width.

## How do you read dimensions?

For example, a dimension of a rectangular room on a blueprint, 14′ 11″ X 13′ 10″ equates to a room size of 14 feet, 11-inches wide by 13 feet, 10-inches long. Dimensions are expressed as width by length by height or depth in three-dimensional space.

## How do you hide dimensions in SketchUp?

## What is length and width?

Length refers to the distance between two ends of an object. **Width refers to the measuring the breadth or how wide the object is**. Length can be measured in geometry by considering the biggest side of the object. Width can be measured in geometry by considering the smallest side of the object.

## What comes first in dimensions?

The first dimension to measure is **length**. Length is always the longest side of the box that has a flap. The next dimension is width. The width side also has a flap, but is always the side shorter than the length.
