  1. #1 I assume that x,y,z are integers, or there is no maximum sum. The minimum sum would be 3∛500 ≈ 23.811

    500 = 2^2 5^3 so its factors are
    Now pick the largest and smallest sums.

    #2 v = πr^2h = 1
    so, h = 1/(πr^2)

    The surface area is

    a = 2πr^2 + 2πrh
    = 2πr^2 + 2πr/(πr^2)
    = 2πr^2 + 2/r
    da/dr = 4πr - 2/r^2
    da/dr=0 when r=1/∛(2π)
    so, h=∛(4/π)

    #3 The diagonal of the rectangle is the diameter of the circle. So,

    x^2+y^2 = 4r^2
    a = xy = x√(4r^2-x^2)
    da/dx = 2(2r^2-x^2)/√(4r^2-x^2)
    da/dx=0 when x = r√2
    So, as expected, the rectangle is a square with diagonal 2r

    #4 as above, it will be half of a square, with legs L/√2.
    It's really the same problem, because a right triangle can be inscribed in a circle. Its hypotenuse is the diameter of the circle.
