Clarification needed!

Print Friendly and PDF
Here is question 24 from the New York State Algebra II (Common Core) Regents exam from January 2017. Please look at it closely!

Now that you have read it carefully, take note that the domain of this question seems to run from -2 past 5. Also take note that if x is less than 1 or greater than 5, one of the sides must have a negative length. Since lengths cannot be negative, this graph can NOT be a model for the volume of a box, hence the question cannot be answered.
