**Reiny**, Tuesday, August 9, 2011 at 1:50pmThis is a continuation of the question I answered for you earlier.

Since you titled it "Calculus" you should be able to finish it.

1. expand and simplify the expression for V

2. differentiate, you will have a quadratic

3. solve that quadratic by setting it equal to zero for a max of V

4. sub the value you found in 3. into the original volume equation

for the restriction, all you have to do is look at the equation for V

V of course has to be positive.

so x > 0 and x < 3 or else the base side values make no sense.

restriction on x : 0 < x < 3
