If someone could explain to me how to do this. It would be very appreciated. Thanks!

**Reiny**, Wednesday, August 24, 2011 at 1:59pmtake a piece of paper and scissors and actually cut out the squares, then fold up the sides

I will do the case of x = 2

then the length = 26 - 4 = 22 (cut 2 cm off each end)

the width = 18-4 = 14

the height will be 2

volume = (22)(14)(2) = 616 cm^3

do the other two cases the same way.
