'What are the dimensions of a cylinder that has the same maximum volume as the box (1131.97 cm2), but uses the minimum amount of material to make it?'

Here are the notes I have so far:

SA=2Pi r^2 + 2 Pi r (1131.97/Pi r^2)

Now i need to use derivatives, I don't know how!


Then these notes-
at min. gradent =0 therefore SA1=0

rearrange to find r

sub r in to find

Anyone have any clue? thanks. its my assinment
