A company produces a cardboard box in the shape of a cube. The surface area of the box is represented by S=6x2, where x is the edge length of the box. Find the inverse by solving for x without switching the variables.

Answer:

the two variables in the question are surface area S and edge length X. Without switching the variables we know that we are solving for X instead for inverse. The edge length can be solved with this formula: X = Square root of (S/6)
