Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry I meant the area of a circle.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No it's an optimization problem I am trying to do, I just need to solve for 'r'

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Multiply everything by r^2. Then factor out an r. From there it's a quadratic.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh my bad. You actually get a cubic.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Multiply everything by r^2. When you multiply the fraction, multiply on top.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[r^2 or \frac{ r^2 }{ r^2 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah so woulnt that cancel out with the fraction

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes =) That's the point. It gets r out of the denominator.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohh i thought you were also telling me to muktiply the top by r^3 so the function would be diff, i misunderstood

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(\huge 0 = \frac{r2700}{r^2} + 62\pi*r\) multiply everything by r^2 \(\huge (0)*r^2 = (\frac{r2700}{r^2})*r^2 + (62\pi*r)*r^2\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Gives: \(\huge 0 = r2700 + 62\pi*r^3\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And honestly from there your best bet is to use a cubic solver of some sort. Wolfram Alpha should do just fine.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I suggest you double check, because you will not solve this without the aid of wolfaplha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I suggest you take a look at this http://gbbservices.com/math/cubic.html

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay on the step where you take C', you make incorrect use of the quotient rule. The derivative of the top will be 0.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The correct derivative is: \(\Large C' = \frac{27900}{r^2} + 62\pi*r\)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Set 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?
