Did you work that out? Or just something you know?
A box with all sides measuring 20.7ish ins would just fit our TV nicely.

3 cu ft seems a funny volume to quote - sure they didn't say a 3 foot cube?

Its a simple calculation: The formula for volume is LxWxD
so a box that is 2 feet by 2 feet by 2 feet would have a volume of 8 cubic feet (2x2x2).

A 3 cubic feet box would therefore be any combination of measurements that equal 3. The box could be 18inches by 24inches by 12inches (1.5x2x1=3)

Good luck !!

Sorry I forgot to add that if you have odd sized boxes where its hard to measure by the foot just use the same formula as above and enter the LxWxD in inches, then divide the result by 1728. That will convert the cubic inches into cubic feet

Whoops! 3 cu ft isn't a 20.7 ins box. It's a box just less than 16x16x16ins.
BTW 1.5x1.5.x1 ft is only 2.25 cu ft.
Pedantic , moi?

Oops.... made a typo, corrected it now, 1.5*2*1=3
so the box would be 18x24x12 which is 5184 cubic inches, then 5184 divided by 1728 equals 3 cubic feet !!
A bit early in the morn for math though !!
