Hornworts differ from mosses and liverworts in containing: a. small leaves b. photosynthetic sporophytes c. gametphytes d. sporophytes e. spores Well, First I thought ok its small leaves and that was wrong. Next I thought it would be spores and that was wrong. My next guess ...

PreCalc (Just Can't Comprehend)
When I graphed it, I got a reciprocal function not a parabola. I don't know how to find a minumum that's not a parabola or a cubic. Should I just go with the guess and check and call it 20 X 20?

So basically, I have to guess and check. 20 X 20 would be the smallest but is a square. How about 16 X 25 = 82? I would much rather have a mathematical way to go about it.
