A cardboard box of 108in cubed volume with a square base and no top constructed. Find the minimum area of the cardboard needed. (Optimization)
Volume=s^2*h or 108/s^2=h
Would the answer be 3.7?
you are looking for area, finding s is only the first step. Look at the area formula.
answer in the back of the book is 180in squared
but im not getting that answer
