An open box is made from a square piece of material 24 inches on a side by cutting equal squares from the corners and turning up the sides. Write the Volume V of the box as a function of x. Recall that Volume is the product of length, width, and height.
Thank you!

let each side of the cutout square be x in
then isn't the base 242x by 242x ?
and isn't the height of the box x ?
take it from there.

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