# Math Help - Optimization

1. ## Optimization

A cylinder is inscribed in a right circular cone of height 8 and radius (at the base) equal to 3.5. What are the dimensions of such a cylinder which has maximum volume?

2. ## Re: Optimization

Express the radius of the cylinder as a function of its height. Thus express the cylinder's volume as a function of its height. Then find the maximum of the volume by differentiating.
