Expert Answer

Step 1

Let the width of the original piece of cardboard be x.

Since, the length is 12 in more than width then length of the original piece of cardboard is x+12.

After two of the 6 inch cut outs,

Width = x – 12

Length =12+x-12= x

Height = 6

Since,

Volume = lwh

V=x (x-12)6

Here, V = 1950

1950 6x2-72x
6x2 72x-1950= 0
