A box with a square base and no top is to be made from a square piece of cardboard by cutting 4-in squares from each corner and folding up the sides... the box is told 100 in cube, how big a piece of cardboard is needed?

    If you mean "The box has a total volume of 100 in^3, then
    (1) The sides of the box are 4 in high, so the base area must be 25 in^2
    (2) That means the box sides are 5 inches long
    (3) The original cardboard square piece must be 5 + 4 + 4 = 13 inches on a side, so that you will have a 5-inch-square base when the 4-inch-square corners are cut off
