A square-based, box-shaped shipping crate is designed to have a volume of 16ft^3. The material used to make the base costs twice as much (per ft^2) as the material in the sides, and the material used to make the top costs half as much (per ft^2) as the material in the sides. What are the dimensions of the crate that minimize the cost of materials?
