A box with an open top is to be made by cutting 5inch squares from the corners of a rectangular piece of cardboard whose length is twice its width and then folding up the remaining flaps. Let x represent the width of the original piece of cardboard; express the volume (V) of the box as a function of x, and simplify the function.
