**Reiny**, Sunday, November 30, 2008 at 12:37pmlet the radius of the can be r mm

and its height be h mm

area = 1 rectangle + 2 circles

= 2pi(r)(h) + 2pi(r^2)

seems length = 2 circuferences + height of can

= 2(2pi(r)) + h

= 4pi(r) + h

so Cost = 2[2pi(r)(h) + 2pi(r^2)] + 1[4pi(r) + h]

but pi(r^2)h = 1000

so h = 1000/(pi(r^2))

this should give you a good start, sub h back into the Cost equation,

find the derivative of Cost,

then solve for r

sub back into Cost equation to find minimum cost
