Its the derivative method.

- Calculus- please help -
**MathMate**, Thursday, March 15, 2012 at 8:46pmHints:

Here you have two variables, and one constraint. From the constraint, y can be solved in terms of x. This value of y can then be substituted into Q to make Q a function of Q=Q(x), whose minimum value can be calculated by differentiation.

I get x=±7√2.

Check each to make sure it is a minimum or maximum.
