An open box is to be made from a flat piece of material 18 inches long and 2 inches wide by cutting equal squares of length xfrom the corners and folding up the sides.
Write the volume Vof the box as a function of x. Leave it as a product of factors, do not multiply out the factors.

If we write the domain of the box as an open interval in the form (a,b), then what is a=?
and what is b=?

I got V=x(18-2x)(2-2x)
and a=0

but it says that its not correct
