Homework Help: Calculus

Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, May 18, 2010 at 9:17pm.

I actually have two questions:

4. An open box is to be made from a rectangular piece of material 3m by 2m by cutting a congruent square from each corner and folding up the sides. What are the dimensions of the box of the largest volume made this way, and what is the volume?

5. A cylindrical container w/ a circular base is to hold 64 cubic cm. Find its dimensions so that the amt (surface area) of metal required is a minimum when the container is
a. an open cup and
b. a closed can.

---

W/ 4, I have no idea how to approach. All I got is that volume of the box would be s(s-2)(s-3), I think.

As for 5, I know the formula for the volume and surface area, but my question is about the open cup for a. You probably have to subtract something from somewhere...but where? I don't really know.

Thank you very much!
