A box with a square base and open top must have a volume of 442368 cm3. We wish to find the dimensions of the box that minimize the amount of material used.
First, find a formula for the surface area of the box in terms of only x, the length of one side of the square base.
[Hint: use the volume formula to express the height of the box in terms of x.]
Simplify your formula as much as possible.
can anyone tell me what this equation is? );
