Rectangle R has varying length L and width W but with a constant area of 4 square feet. a)Express the perimeter P as a function of length L. What type of function is P? What is the domain of P? (I only help with parts B and C) b)Describe the asymptotic behavior of P. What can you say about rectangle R because of this behavior? c) For what values of L and W will the perimeter of R be the least? Give a geometric explanation.

I only help with parts B and C

what do you have for part A ?
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
i ask because PartB and C depend on part A

I have P = 2(4+L^2)/L

@mahima2558 do you have the same for part A?

\[\large P = \dfrac{2(4+L^2)}{L}\] looks good
anonymous
  • anonymous
so for part b, is L=0 the only asymptote
anonymous
  • anonymous
and I'm not sure what I can say about the rectangle from that
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
Look at the graph of P |dw:1436239083007:dw|
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
x axis is L y axis is P
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
what do you notice in the graph as you increase L ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
P increases?
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
Yes, what happens if you increase L too much
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
P also increases and the rectangle looks as if it is a thin line, yes ? |dw:1436239328327:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
just explain that in ur own words for part b
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
also explain what happens to P and how the rectangle looks as you make L very low
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok that makes sense
anonymous
  • anonymous
for part c do i use the graph to find the value of L and W were P would be the least?
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
that will do!
anonymous
  • anonymous
the minimum value of the graph is (2,8) so that means the length is 2 and the perimeter is 8
anonymous
  • anonymous
so the width would be 2 as well?
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok great, thank you
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
yw!
