    ...Find the most efficient way to build this box...

    Question: The material for the base of a box will cost three times as much as the material for the sides and top of the box. The box must have a volume of 200 meters cubed. Find the most efficient way to built this box.

    Anyone know how to do this without using anything calculus related?

    Does your box have a square base?. Be a little easier if it does.
