remember that the base the rectangular box is not a sqaure. Its a rectangle and the diameter of the cylinder shall therefore be limited by the width of the rectangular base. Given this we need to find the radius that will give us the max. volume.

taking 6 and 8 as base of rectangle:-

Volume is pi X 3^2 X 10

taking 6 and 10 as base of rectangle

Volume is pi 3^2 X 8

taking 8 and 10 as base of rectangle

Volume is pi 4^2 X 10 ----->>> this gives the max. volume.
