On a rectangular piece of cardboard with perimeter 11 inches, three parallel and equally spaced creases are made. The cardboard is then folded along the creases to make a rectangular box with open ends. Letting x represent the distance (in inches) between the creases, use a graphing calculator to find the value of that maximizes the volume enclosed by this box. Then give the maximum volume. Round your responses to two decimal places.
values of x that maximizes volume = in
Maximum volume= in^3
