Question

B has 360 cm of wire. She wants to build the wire
frame of a rectangular prism

where the length of the base is twice the width of the base. what
dimensions should she use to build a wire frame for the largest
possible volume? (Hint: A rectangular prism has 12

edges total)

Answer #1

A triangular prism has base length 10 cm, base height 8 cm and

formed by halving these dimensions.?

Jesse wants to build a rectangular pen for his animals. One side
of the pen will be against the barn; the other three sides will be
enclosed with wire fencing. If Jesse has 700 feet of fencing, what
dimensions would maximize the area of the pen?
a) Let w be the length of the pen perpendicular to the barn. Write
an equation to model the area of the pen in terms of w
Area =
b) What width w would...

Ben wants to build a rectangular enclosure for his animals. One
side of the pen will be against the barn, so he needs no fence on
that side. The other three sides will be enclosed with wire
fencing. If Ben has 450 feet of fencing, you can find the
dimensions that maximize the area of the enclosure.
A(W)=A(W)=
b) What width WW would maximize the area?
WW = ft
Round to nearest half foot
c) What is the maximum area?
AA...

A rectangular storage container with an open top has a volume of
10 m3 . The length of the base is twice its width. Material for the
base costs $10 per sqaure meter and material for the sides costs $6
per square meter. (a) Find an equation for the volume of the box,
relating the variables of the height of the box and the width of
the base of the box. (b) Use the previous equation to solve for the...

A company wants to manufacture a rectangular planter box of
volume 12 litres (12, 000 cm3 ). The box is open at the top and is
designed to have its width equal to half of its length. The plastic
used for the base of the box is stronger and costs 0.06 cents per
cm2 while the plastic used for the sides of the box costs 0.04
cents per cm2. Find the length, width and height of the box for
which...

Your sister wants to construct a rectangular garden with three
separate areas for the two of you and your brother. She has 400 ft
of fencing for the outer boundary and the separating fences. She
asks you to calculate the dimensions in order to have the maximum
enclosed total area.
(a) Find the total enclosed area, A(x), as a function of the
width, x, and determine the x-interval over which it is to be
maximized.
(b) Find the critical point...

A lifeguard has 1800 feet of rope that she wants to use to
create 3 congruent rectangular swimming areas in a lake as pictured
below. What dimensions of the entire rectangle will maximize the
total swimming area.

1. A baseball team plays in a stadium that holds 66000
spectators. With the ticket price at $10 the average attendance has
been 28000. When the price dropped to $8, the average attendance
rose to 33000.
a) Find the demand function ?(?)p(x), where ?x is the number of the
spectators. (Assume that ?(?)p(x) is linear.)
p(x)=
b) How should ticket prices be set to maximize revenue?
The revenue is maximized by charging $ per ticket.
2. A rectangular storage container...

A soil scientist has just developed a new type of fertilizer and
she wants to determine whether it helps carrots grow larger. She
sets up several pots of soil and plants one carrot seed in each
pot. Fertilizer is added to half the pots. All the pots are placed
in a temperature-controlled greenhouse where they receive adequate
light and equal amounts of water. After two months of growth, the
scientist harvests the carrots and weighs them (in kilograms).
