The Java applet simulates a piece of paper that is 9 inches by 9 inches long. Dragging the slider will show how much of the paper's corners will be cut. Clicking on "Save Values" will save the values to a table and calculate the volume. Clicking on "Reset Table" will clear the table.
The authors suggest using Safari to view the applet if you are using a Macintosh computer.
