I'm getting -2A/h^2 Does that look right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
My reasoning: A= 1/2 b * h 2A = b * h b = 2A/h db/dh 2A/h = db/dh 2A * h^-1 = 2A * -h^-2 = -2A/h^2

Right, but you don't differentiate Area...only height.

Or am I wrong about this?

Doesn't it mean that if we keep the Area constant, at what rate does the base change respective of the height? That can't be 0, I wouldn't think.
