    A Lid made from a square shaped paper, must fit on a rectangular box (no lid).

    The values of the rectangular box is given, the question is to determine the amount needed to be cut off from a 10x10cm paper with 1mm over lap and 1 cm folded edge which maximizes the volume of the box AND what the volume of the box underneath will be.
