An open box is formed from an 80cm by 80cm peice of metal by cutting four identical squares from the corners and folding up the sides. Express the volume of the box in terms of x. Then describe how you could find the maximum possible volume.

    The height of the box becomes x, and each side is reduced by 2x. Therefore the volume is given by V = x(80-2x)(80-2x) because the original length and width are both 80.
