you are told 2x+y= 800 you know Area= x*y using the first equation, we find y= 800-2x so Area = x(800-2x) now do the calculus thing: find the derivative and set it equal to 0

Do I distribute the x and then derive?

you could use the product rule, but distributing is easier

Okay so when I distribute the x I get 800x-2x^2 and when I derive it I get 800-4x and then I set it to 0. 800-4x=0. -4x=-800 and x=200
phi

the question asks for the max area, so use x=200 to find the area.

So it would be 160,000?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Because I would multiply 800 and 200?
phi
  • phi
2x+y= 800 2*200+y= 800 y= 400

And then I would plug that into A=xy and get 80,000 correct?
phi
  • phi
yes, that looks good.
