 Question 194905: A box is to be constructed so that its height is twice its length and its width is 2 inches less than the length. Give a complete description of the function giving the volume of the box in terms of the length.Answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(15652)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!A box is to be constructed so that its height is twice its length and its width is 2 inches less than the length. Give a complete description of the function giving the volume of the box in terms of the length. ; Let x = the length : It says,"A box is to be constructed so that its height is twice its length" 2x = the height : and "its width is 2 inches less than the length." (x-2) = the width : Give a complete description of the function giving the volume of the box in terms of the length. : Vol = length * height * width V = x * 2x * (x-2) V = 2x^2 * (x-2) V(x) = 2x^3 - 4x^2, the vol in terms of x (which is the length)
