Introduction In this part of project, we base on the dirt evaluated in Part IV to design a box that Holds the dirt. However we are not finding any dimension of the box to hold dirt, but the smallest dimension of box that holds the dirt, that means the length of the box should be as small as possible but can hold the same amount of dirt. For example a box with dimension of 9 cm, 3.8 cm, and 17.5 cm has a surface area of 516.4 cm 2 and holds a volume of 598.5 cm 3 (Volume: 9 • 3.8 • 17.5 = 598.5 cm 3 , area: 2(9 • 3.8) + 2(3.8 • 17.5) + 2(3.8 • 17.5) = 516.4 cm 2 ). However a box with a dimension of 8.43 cm can holds the same amount of dirt but only ahs a surface area of 426.4 cm 2 (Volume: 8.43 • 8.43 • 8.43 = 599 cm 3 , area: 2(8.43 • 8.43) + 2(8.43 • 8.43) + 2(8.43 • 8.43) = 426.4 cm 2 ).

A(x) The total volume of dirt below A(x) is 10462.8852 ft 3 . The dimension of the box that holds the dirt is 21.87176445 ft. Work: XYZ = 10462.8852 ft 3 SA(surface area) = 2xy + 2xy + 2yz SA = 2x (10462.8852/(xy)) + 2xy + 2y(10462.8852/(xy)) SA = 20925.7704y -1 + 2xy + 20925.7704x -1 SA = 2y – 20925.7704x -2 = 0 SA = 2x – 20925.7704y -2 = 0 Since 2y – 20925.7704x -2 = 0, and 2x – 20925.7704y -2 = 0, x = y. 2x – 20925.7704x -2 = 0 2x = 20925.7704/x 2 2x 3 = 20925.7704 x 3 = 10462.8852

Work: XYZ = 2884.506427 ft 3 SA = 2x (2884.506427/(xy)) + 2xy + 2y(2884.506427/(xy)) SA = 5769.012854y-1 + 2xy + 5769.012854x-1 SA = 2y – 5769.012854x-2 = 0 SA = 2x – 5769.012854y-2 = 0 x = y. 2x – 5769.012854x-2 = 0 2 2x = 5769.012854/x 2 2x 3 = 5769.012854 x 3 = 2884.506427 x = 14.23499013 C(x) The total volume of dirt below C(x) is 6768.616573 ft 3 . The dimension of the box that holds the dirt is 18.91617418 ft. Work: XYZ = 6768.616573 ft 3 SA = 2x (6768.616573/(xy)) + 2xy + 2y(6768.616573/(xy)) SA = 13537.23315y-1 + 2xy + 13537.23315x-1 SA = 2y – 13537.23315x-2 = 0 SA = 2x – 13537.23315y-2 = 0 x = y. 2x – 13537.23315x-2 = 0 2x = 13537.23315/x 2 2x 3 = 13537.23315 x 3 = 6768.616573 x = 18.91617418 3 Conclusion The math that we use in this part of project is very important to the real world because by using this formula to find the dimension of the box, we are able to save many space in the world. For example in business world, it is very important for them to create a box that can hold their box but on the other hand saves money. 4...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
