Steve’s first aquarium had a rectangular base that was 8 inches longer than it was wide. He replaced this with a larger aquarium that was 2 inches wider and 4 inches longer than the first one.

He found that if he filled each to a depth of 10 inches, it required 840 cubic inches more water to fill the new aquarium than the old. What were the dimensions of the base of the original aquarium?
