A.) Write an expression that gives the area of the rectangle as a function of a.

B.) The area of the rectangle is maximized for some c beween 1 and 3. Write the expression you would need to solve in order to find c.

- Calculus (Edit) -
**Anonymous**, Saturday, May 5, 2012 at 4:26pmWorking this through a little more, I believe that the expression for A should be f(a) = (ln(a))(3-a). Now, I just need help with part B. I am really no good when it comes to maximization, so I could really use some help.
