 Question 44025: I've got this question: An open-top box is to be constructed from a 6 by 8 foot rectangular cardboard by cutting out equal squares at each corner and the folding up the flaps. Let x denote the length of each side of the square to be cut out. a)Find the function V that represents the volume of the box in terms of x. I've managed to come up with volume of the box is width x length x height = (6-2x)(8-2x)x. This is where it ends for me, I can't figure out how to solve it and I need to solve it, because I have to graph it. b) Graph this function and show the graph over the valid range of the variable x.

 Question 45804: Hi, I have a word problem. And it says that I have to assume that the exercise describes a linear relationship. ok... here it is. A vendor has learned that, by pricing hot dogs at \$1.00, sales would reach 102 hot dogs per day. Raising the price to \$1.50 will cause the sales to fall to 78 hot dogs per day. Let y be the number of hotdogs the vendor sells at x dollars each. Write a linear equation that models the number of hot dogs sold per day when the price is x dollars each. In my work I keep getting 48x but Im not sure how. I may be negative, I don't know. And I'm getting both 54 and 150 to add on to it in the equation but again, I'm not sure. THANK YOU!
