THANK YOU!!!

**Damon**, Tuesday, August 5, 2008 at 9:19pmcost = 6 b + 4 L = 6600

area = b L

so

4 L = 6600 - 6 b

L = 1650 - 1.5 b

area = y = 1650 b - 1.5 b^2

that is a parabola opening down, the maximum will be at the vertex

find the vertex

1.5 x^2 -1650 x = -y

x^2 - 1100 x = -2 y/3

x^2 - 1100 x + 302500 = -2 y/3 + 302500

(x-550)^2 = -2 y/3 + 302500

x = b = 550

so L = 1650 - 1.5 (550)

L = 825
