Default Calculus I optimization word problem

A box is to be made out of a 6 by 18 piece of cardboard. Squares of equal size will be cut out of each corner, and then the ends and sides will be folded up to form a box with an open top. Find the length (L) , width (W), and height (H) of the resulting box that maximizes the volume.
(Assume that W is < or = to L).
