Summer term Week 2 Killer question worth 5 marks


An open box is made from a square sheet of cardboard with sides of length 50cm. The box is formed by cutting a square from each corner, folding up the sides and joining the cut edges.

Find the maximum capacity of the box (in cm 3to 3sf).

Note: Summer term has begun.

Due to popular demand, we have decided to give you an extra weekend to get your week 1 answers posted on line at www. cleverclogsonline. com.

There you will also find a list of winners from the spring term - over £800 worth of prizes so far plus the great MP3 players, cameras and PDAs won in the live final.

The extra time for week 1 means that we will be ready for your killer question answer on Monday at 10am. Good luck!
