volume = 3(x-6)(y-6) = 756
can u solve those 2 equations ? xy=486 3(x-6)(y-6) = 756 ?
cAN I DO the substitution method?
x = 486/y then substitute to the second equation
try it, if u go wrong, i'll help.... instead substitute xy=486 in 2nd equation
u get xy term in 2nd equation
and u'll be able to find x+y from 2nd equation...
18y^2-810y+8748 very big numbers >.<
if 18y^2-810y+8748 is correct... i have not checked that.
y^2-45y+486 =0 is correct can u factor it ?
hint : 18*27 = 486
y^2-45y+486 =0 (y-18)(y-27)=0
find y from here, then u also get 2 values of x then dimensions are x,y
you're a very big help to me my friend. thanks a lot :)
