Miguel is designing shipping boxes that are rectangular prisms. The shape of one box, with height h in feet, has a volume defined by the function V(h) = h(h – 10)(h – 8). What is the maximum volume for the domain 0 < h < 10? Round to the nearest cubic foot.

    i suggest expand the expression for the volume function, take its derivative, and find the roots of the derivative. the value of h should be somewhere in the interval 0<h<8. finally compute the volume for that particular value of h.
