MathMate,
Find out what is the minimum and maximum size of the cut out in consideration of the size (12"x10") of the tin piece.
The domain of the function consists of all the possible values of x.
If it is not clear, draw a rectangle to represent the tin sheet, and draw the four squares at each corner.
