**Steve**, Tuesday, November 1, 2011 at 11:22amif the page width = w, the height = 30/w

Allowing for two margins on each dimension,

a(w) = (width + 2*2)(30/w + 2*1)

= (w+4)(30/w+2)

= 30 + 2w + 120/w + 8

= 2w + 120/w + 38

area is min where da/dw = 0

da/dw = 2 - 120/w^2

2w^2 = 120

w^2 = 60

w = 7.75

a(7.75) = 68.98 -- call it 69 in^{2}
