    ok first off z is 4, so lets forget z and replace it by 4

    the volume of the first tube, the one with side \(x\) is \(4\times (\frac{1}{4}x)^2\)

    why is it 1/4 ?

    because your entire length is \(x\) and you are folding it in to a square so the side of the square is \(\frac{1}{4}x\)

    and therefore the area of the square is \((\frac{1}{4}x)^2=\frac{x^2}{16}\) and since \(z=4\) the volume is \(4\times \frac{x^2}{16}=\frac{x^2}{4}\)

    the volume of the second one is easy, since \(z=4\) it is just \(y\)

    then we add them togther?

    now we use the fact that \(x+y=8\) and so \(y=8-x\)

    now we add them together, because now we have an expression for the volume in one variable it will be \[V(x)=\frac{x^2}{4}+8-x\]

    now if this is a calculus question you can take the derivative, set it equal to zero and solve if not, you can say the vertex is at \(-\frac{b}{2a}\) with \(a=\frac{1}{4}\) and \(b=-1\)

    ok good this has a min at the vertex, and i guess a max at the end point of the interval, so be careful about what that is

    i guess it is \([0,8]\) since \(x\) must be in there somewhere

    Hi just quick question, why we need interval there? how did you know that there should be an inteval?
