Find the dimensions needed to minimize the amount of material to make an open box with a volume of 48 cubic feet, where length is twice the width.

Sep 17th, 2014

the equation to calculate the volume is L*W*H=48

let x=width, 2x=length, H=y

the expression becomes x*2x*y=48

simplifying it becomes 2x^2*y=48


The expression cannot be simplified further because it has 2 unknowns. If you can provide more information on the question ill be glad to assist.
