From the four corners of a square piece of paper of side 12cm, small squares of 1cm are cut off. The edges of this are bent up and joined to form a container of height 1cm. What is the capacity of the container? If squares of side 2cm are cut off, what would be the capacity?

  1. so the base will be 10 cm by 10 cm by 1 cm.
    (you are cutting of 1 cm from either end of the 12)

    Volume = (10)(10)(1) cm^3 = 100 cm^3

    follow the same steps for the second part.
