: A machine produces open boxes using sqaure sheets of plastic. The machine
: cuts equal sized squares measuring 3 inches on a side from each corner of the
: sheet, ,and then shapes the plastic into an open box by turning up the sides.
: If each box must have a volume of 675 cubic inches, find the length of one
: side of the open box.
Since ya got 3by3's, box dimensions will be 3L by 3W by 3H (Length,Width,Height, of course).
So V = 27LWH = 675; LWH = 675/27 = 25
Only possibility: 1 * 5 * 5 = 25; so box is 3 by 15 by 15.
