A manufacturer needs to produce a cylindrical can with a volume (capacity) of 1000cm cubed. The top and the bottom of the container are made of material that costs $0.05 per square cm, while the side of the container is made of material costing $0.03 per square centimeter. Find the dimensions of the container that will minimize the company's cost of producing this container. What is the minimum cost?
