**jenny**, Friday, October 24, 2008 at 12:32pmOr V=1/3(24-2x)^2*x

I'm confused as to how you came up with the base as 24-2x.

Thanks for your help!

**Reiny**, Friday, October 24, 2008 at 12:46pmdraw a square with sides 24 in

draw small square cut-outs at each of the corners, each of those sides is x inches long.

Now didn't you take away x inches from each end??

so 24 - x -x or 24-2x

**Reiny**, Friday, October 24, 2008 at 12:49pmHow did you come up with that equation ??

Your equation of V(x)= x(24-x)^2

in your first response should have been

V(x)= x(24-**2x**)^2 ?
