Four identical squares are cut from the corners of a rectangular shet of metal with dimensions:
16 meters by 10 meters.
Find the dimensions of the box that has the maximum volume.
Length = 10m
Width = 16m
Height = x
Therefore the Function is:
Find the derivative and solve for v'=0.
I'm stuck on solving v'=0.
The quadratics discriminant in my calculations is a negative, so using the quadratic formula does not work.
I don't know what the next step is.
