lol
That's fine lol
c=2piR and 200=4r+2x (x being the base of the rectangle) this is how i set it up
i think you have the perimeter wrong
how?
You're not accounting for the circumference of the circle. Your equation only includes the area of the rectangle.
You would need it to be \(2x + c = 200\)
c is the circumference right
Yes, and that's right (\(2 \pi r\)).
okay and then differentiate that equation correct?
You would need to differentiate the area, not the perimeter.
So, can you first determine a formula for the area of your diagram?
pir^2+2rx
Yeah, that looks good.
should i substitute r or x
Whichever one you want
100/3pi = r seem right?
