I'm sorry, but I'm not a math tutor. My skills stop at about 7th grade.
An open box is to be made from a rectangular piece of tin 12 inches long and 10 inches wide by cutting pieces of x-inch square from each corner and bending up the sides.
a. Find a formula that expresses the volume V of the box as a function of x.
b. Find the domain of the function.
