[SOLVED]Maximizing

Consider a sheet of length L and width W.

Each corner is cut out (x by x corners removed).

Detemine the value of x so when the corners are removed and flaps folded up, the five sided box formed will have maximum volume.

SA $$= 1LW + 2 LH + 2WH$$ and V $$= LWH$$.

I am not sure how to do this maximizing problem.
