    Finding Dimensions

    A rectangular piece of cardboard that has dimensions 50cm x 30cm will be formed into the base of a cardboard box. The corners of the piece of cardboard in the shape of a square will be removed. If the desired volume of the cardboard box is to be 1056cm^3, what will be the dimensions of the cardboard box?

    50_{cm}\cdot 30_{cm} \cdot x=1056_{cm^3}

    x=\frac{1056_{cm^3}}{50_{cm} \cdot 30_{cm}}

    I presume this is what you ment.
