SammyS, it makes sense that I got the minimum :) (thanks for mentioning it though because I initially thought I was doing something redundant rather than getting a minimum). What you said sounds like what I did though. Could you please be a bit more descriptive algorithmically?
[itex]\displaystyle V=\ell hw[/itex]

If h = w , then = 250 - 4h ,

and [itex]\displaystyle V=(250 - 4h)h^2\,.[/itex]

Maximize that.
