    You are trying to find the area of a radius?

    Sorry I meant the area of a circle.

    No it's an optimization problem I am trying to do, I just need to solve for 'r'

    Oh I thought that because the formula to finding the area of a circle,you have to first square the radius and then multiply it by pi (r^2)3.14.

    Multiply everything by r^2. Then factor out an r. From there it's a quadratic.

    Oh my bad. You actually get a cubic.

    Multiply everything by r^2. When you multiply the fraction, multiply on top.

    \[r^2 or \frac{ r^2 }{ r^2 }\]

    yeah so woulnt that cancel out with the fraction

    Yes =) That's the point. It gets r out of the denominator.

    ohh i thought you were also telling me to muktiply the top by r^3 so the function would be diff, i misunderstood

    \(\huge 0 = \frac{r-2700}{r^2} + 62\pi*r\) multiply everything by r^2 \(\huge (0)*r^2 = (\frac{r-2700}{r^2})*r^2 + (62\pi*r)*r^2\)

    Gives: \(\huge 0 = r-2700 + 62\pi*r^3\)

    And honestly from there your best bet is to use a cubic solver of some sort. Wolfram Alpha should do just fine.

    I suggest you double check, because you will not solve this without the aid of wolfaplha

    Okay on the step where you take C', you make incorrect use of the quotient rule. The derivative of the top will be 0.

    The correct derivative is: \(\Large C' = \frac{-27900}{r^2} + 62\pi*r\)

    Set the derivative equal to 0 and solve: \(\Large \frac{-27900}{r^2} + 62\pi*r = 0\) \(\Large (\frac{-27900}{r^2} + 62\pi*r)*r^2 = 0*r^2\) \(\Large -27900 + 62\pi*r^3 = 0\) \(\Large 62\pi*r^3 = 27900\) You good from there?
