# need answer for this

A sheet of paper 10''-by-16'' is made into an open box (i.e. there's no top),by cutting x-in. squares out of each corner and folding up the sides. Find the value of x that maximizes the volume of the box.Give your answer in the simplified radical form.

MAKE A FIGURE. when x is cut in squares and the box is formed the height of box is x" bredth is 10-2x" and length is 16-2x" volume of box is LBH=x(10-2x)(16-2x) differentiate it and equate it to zero , so x=1/2"
