    Q: This diagram represents a rectangular sheet of metal 8 cm by 5 cm. Equal squares of side x cm are removed from each corner, and the edges are then turned up to make an open box of volume v cm^3. Show that v = 40x - 26x^2 + 4x^3
    Hence find the maximum possible volume, and the corresponding value of x.

    Help would really be appreciated

    For the first bit, can you see that the lengths of the sides will now be 8-2x and 5-2x? Then the height will be x. Multiplying these together will give you the volume
