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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\large P = \dfrac{2(4+L^2)}{L}\] looks good

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes, what happens if you increase L too much

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1P also increases and the rectangle looks as if it is a thin line, yes ? dw:1436239328327:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1just explain that in ur own words for part b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1also explain what happens to P and how the rectangle looks as you make L very low

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for part c do i use the graph to find the value of L and W were P would be the least?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the minimum value of the graph is (2,8) so that means the length is 2 and the perimeter is 8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the width would be 2 as well?
