Homework Help: Calculus

Posted by Monique on Saturday, August 1, 2009 at 2:47pm.

An open box is to be made from cutting squares of side "s" from each corner of a piece of cardboard 25" by 30".

Write an expression for the volume, V, of the box in terms of s.

-I have no idea where to start on this. I know V=lwh (length*width*height), but what about "s" and the 25x30 piece? I'm so confused. Help please?

Thank you so much! :)
