Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I would break it down into prime numbers, and then use the entire list of prime numbers and multiply them together to make two numbers that make up 192. Then after a few you should have all of the numbers that could make up in a chart, and you can pick the two that add up to make the lowest number.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x times y =192\[\rightarrow\] y=192/x x+y=s \[\rightarrow\] x+(192/x)=s ,, and then dervive both sides when you know s is a constant you get x=\[\sqrt{192}\] is a local and absolute minimum
