 Question 233412: I cannot figure out how to put this in form of a quadratic equation. A piece of sheet metal is 2.1 times as long as it is wide. It is to be made into a box with an open top by cutting 3-inche squares from each corner and folding up the sides. I just do not know what to do with the volume. I get this far, but cannot go any further. V=3(x-6)(2.1x-6). I know I have to distribute the height which is 3, but not sure to what and how many times. I have to use a graphing calculator and use the intesect feature, which I know how to do, but the step I do not know how to do is convert the volume equation to a quadratic equation.
