Homework Help: Math

Posted by Haru on Monday, July 21, 2008 at 11:22am.

You want to create a box without a top from an 8.5 in by 11 in sheet of paper. You will make the box by cutting squares of equal size from the four corners of the sheet of paper. If you make the box with the maximum possible volume, what will be the length of the sides of the squares you cut out?

I'm not sure how to start this out. Do I multiply x(8.5-2x)(11-2x)?
