    I have this Maths Coursework that I need help on.

    It is about trays in a shop, a shop keeper asks a company to make some trays.

    the shop keeper says that when the area of the base is the the same as the area of the 4 sides, the volume of the tray will be at a maximum.

    I already know that this is true, but I want to know how to explain it.
