The bag is a block with a sidewall of 20x20 cm and a depth of 8 cm. The bag on top has no cloth, i.e., it is enough to sew a 30 cm x 8 cm strip of material to the two side walls. Otherwise, it would not be a bag but a closed pillow — an example of conversions of area units, its division by the surface of a block without one wall.
