A cylindrical metal can with an open top is to be constructed. the can must have a capacity of 24pie cubic inches. the metal used to contruct the bottom of the can costs 3 times as much as the metal in the rest of the can. Find the dimensions(radius and height) of the can that will minimize the cost of its construction.
