I almost done with all the homework from my calculus class, but I got stuck on one problem, only one problem, but very difficult to understand.
I would really appreciated if someone helps me with it. I dont even know how to start it : /
here it goes...
" Your neighbors are going to knock out the bottom of the entire lenght of the south wall of their house and turn it into a green house by replacing some bottom portion of the wall by a huge sloped piece of glass(which is expensive). They have already decided they are going to spend a certain fixed amout. The triangular ends of the greenhouse will be made of various materials they already have lying around.
The floor space in the greenhouse is only considered usable if they can both stand up in it, so part of it will be unusable, but they dont know how much. Of course this depends on how they configure the greenhouse. They want to choose the dimentions of the greenhouse to get the most usable floor space in it, but they are at a real loss to know wha the dimensions should be and how much usable space they will get. Fortunately, they know you are taking calculus. Amaze them!""
