2) A container company is designing on opentop, squarebased, rectangular box that will have a volume of 62.5 cm^3 [cubed]. Express the surface area of the box as a function of its width.
3) An apple farm yields an average of 30 bushels of apples per tree when 20 trees are planted on an acre of ground. Each time 1 more tree is planted per acre, the yield decreases 1 bushel per tree due to the extra congestion. Express the total yield as a function of the number of trees planted.
4) Express the area of an equilateral triangle as a function of the length of one side.

looks like "homework dumping" or an assignment is due looking at the different types of questions.

Each answer must be a function. 
it would be appreciated
