**Reiny**, Sunday, March 25, 2012 at 5:53pmwidth of field --- x

length of field --- y , with y as the distance along the road

xy = 60000

y = 60000/x

cost = 5(2x+y) + 10y

= 10x = 15y

= 10x + 15(60000/x)

= 10x + 900000/x

d(cost)/dx = 10 - 900000/x^2 = 0 for a min of cost

10x^2 = 900000

x^2 = 90000

x = √90000 = 300

then y = 60000/300 = 200

so the field should be 200 m by 300 m , with the 200 metres along the road

minimum expense = 10x+ 15y = 3000 + 3000 = $6000
