Homework Help: pre-calculus

Posted by perry on Friday, September 18, 2009 at 3:00am.

An open box is made from a square piece of material 36 inches on a side by cutting equal squares from the corners and turning up the sides. Use your calculator to find the maximum volume this box can hold.

I got the equation 4x^3-36x^2+1296x = V

But when I put it in the calculator I don't know how to find the maximum value. How do I find the maximum value of a 3rd degree polynomial like this?
