An open box is to be made from a flat piece of material 10 inches long and 5 inches wide by cutting equal squares of length x from the corners and folding up the sides.

Write the volume Vof the box as a function of x. Leave it as a product of factors, do not multiply out the factors.

V =

a =

and what is b =?
