: By the way, I played around with that; here's interesting stuff:
: Let square side = A and "little squares" side = X.
: Then, for maximum volume, A = 6X ; try with above: 15 = 6(2.5)
: Also, the maximum volume becomes 16X^3 ; above: 16(2.5^3) = 250
: SUGGESTION: baffle your teacher with those; ask him/her to give you A or X
: (X easily obtained: A/6); then quickly calculate Volume or A or X :))
: Hope those are correct......Mr S ?
