We can't draw diagrams on these boards but here is how I would approach the problem.
Here is one side running ____ and the left side running  etc..
_________

__ The 2" cut comes out of the corner.


If we take 2" out of each corner, the 10" side is 10"2"2" or 6".
The 8" side is 8"2"2" = 4"
If we fold it to make an open box, the floor is 6" x 4" and the height is 2"
Volume is length x width x height. Check my thinking. You may want to get a sheet of paper and cut to see this problem first hand.
