A candy company needs a custom box for their truffles. The box they've chosen is in the shape of a cylinder with a hemisphere of the same radius on top. The total volume of the box is V= 1/2(4r^2pi/3) + r^2pi(y-r), where y is the height of the box and r is the radius. Originally the candy box was designed to have a height of 6 inches and a radius of 2, but the shipper suggests that the boxes be made slightly shorter. You now need to adjust the radius so that the height is reduced to 5.75 but the volume remains constant. A. Find the value of dr/dy at the point r =2, r = 6. Help with process

    How do you take the dr/dy of V? What rates are you left with?
