A box with no top is to be constructed from a piece of cardboard whose width measures x cm and whose length measures 6 cm more than its width. The box is to be formed by cutting squares that measure 2 cm on each side from the four corners, and then folding up the sides. If the volume of the box will be 182cm^3,what are the dimensions of the piece of cardboard?
