Thanks for the query.

Considering 1 penny = 1 cent,

Soham works at a soft drink company and was arranging some particular number of cylindrical aluminium soft drink cans in a square box but the box became full and there were 8 cans remaining to be put in.
Then, he started arranging all cans in a rectangular box where he could arrange 6 cans more along the length than the breadth after putting all the cans in the rectangular box.
He found out that there was still space left for another 11 cans.
