Minimum surface area box: All boxes with a square base and a volume of 50ft^3 have a surface area give by S(x) = 2x^2 + 200/x, where x is the length of the sides of the base. Find the absolute minimum of the surface area function. what are the dimensions of the box with minimum surface area. I found the minimum surface area = (200/4)^1/3, but i failed to find the dimensions of the box.

How did you find the minimum surface area?
by taking the derivative of S(x), and equate it to zero
And then you solved for?

Other answers:

x...oh! so thats the dimension?
so i plug in the x value into s(x) to find out the minimum surface area, and then plug in to V=50ft^3 to find out the height of the box?
Well, that's a dimension certainly. Probably the length:width of the square base.
yeah.
thanks!
