Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If the box is square shaped, all its sides are the same length. So length=width=height volume=length x width x height. 250=x^3 x=6.30=length=width=height.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OK \[V =250=x ^{2}y\]\[y =250/x ^{2}\]\[SA =2xy+2xy+2x ^{2}=4xy+2x ^{2}\]Find derivative of SA. Minimise
