Homework Help: Pre-Calc

Posted by MUFFY on Thursday, September 24, 2009 at 11:33pm.

An open box is formed by cutting squares out of a piece of cardboard that is 22 ft by 27 ft and folding up the flaps.

What size corner squares should be cut to yield a box that has a volume of less than 235 cubic feet?

I know that the size corner squares are .42 and 9.46. My teacher wants either brackets or parenthesis. I know if it's more than it gets parenthesis and at least gets brackets. I'm not sure what to do if it is less than.

Would it be:

[0,.42]union[.42,9.46]
