you just got a new shipment of supplies. Using cardboard and make it into an open box. Based on the directions you need to cut a square from each of the corners and fold up the sides. If you take a piece that is 3'"x 5". What is the volume

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The sheet initially measures 3 X % units.

To make a cube, the we cut x units from each side. so the new length is 5-2x while the width is 3-2x

The height is x

The formula for culculating volume is LxWxH

the volume is thus given by (3-2x)(5-2x)(x)

the volume is thus 15x-16x^2+4x^3
