A square piece of tin of side 18cm is to be made into a box without top by cutting a square from each corner and folding of the flaps to form the box. What should be the side of the square to be cut off so that the volume of the box is the maximum possible?


Show that the right circular cylinder of given surface and maximum volume is much that its height is equal to the diameter of the base.
