Find the sum of two numbers whose sum is 70 and whose product is as large as possible.
Ok i got that one equation is y = 70  x...but how do I show an equation for a product which is as large as possible.
The product is P = x (70  x), where x is one of the two numbers.
Set dP/dx = 0 and solve for x.
dP/dx = 0 = 70  2x
Solve for x. 70x will be the other number.
Thanks, got it :D
