i am having serious optimization problems. i don't get it!!! plz help.

a 216-m^2 rectangular pea patch is to be enclosed by a fence and divided into two equal parts by another fence parallel to one of the sides. what dimensions for the outer rectangle will require the smallest total length of fence? how much fence will be needed?

you are designing a 1000-cm^3 right circular cylindrical can whose manufacture will take waste into account. tehre is no waste in cutting the aluminum for the side, but the top and bottom of radius r will be cut from squares that measure 2r units on a side. the total amount of aluminum used up by the can will therefore be
A = 8r^2 + 2(pi)rh
rather than the A = 2(pi)r^2 + 2(pi)rh in Example 4. In example 4 the ratio of h to r for the most economical can was 2 to 1. what is the ratio now?
