Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0first the expression that gives you the volume of the box \[V(x)=x(10x)(18x)\] domain will be \((0,5)\) expand, take the derivative, which will be a quadratic, find the critical points by setting it equal so zero and solve for \(x\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh sorry forgot to take the derivitive. and should it be x(182x)(102x) bc you take the corner away from each side?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry about that try \[V(x)=x(102x)(182x)\] thats better

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0obviously not but in any case algebra gives you \[V(x)=4 x^356 x^2+180 x\] and then it should be more or less routine

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thanks. if you have a box and the lenghth is 12cm and the width is 5cm and the width is increasing at 2 cm/sec and the length is decreasing at 2 cm/sec what is the DA/dt for the area perimeter and diagonal
