Design a can to hold at least 400 ml of liquid. The cans will be produced in the billions, so it is desirable to minimize their manufacturing costs Since cost can be directly related to the surface area of the sheet metal used, it is reasonable to minimize the amount of sheet metal required Fabrication, handling, aesthetics, and shipping considerations impose the following restrictions on the size of the can: The diameter should be no more than 8 cm and no less than 3.5 cm, whereas the height should be no more than 18 cm and no less than 8 cm Variables that needs to be found : D and H. Restrictions: 3.5 ≤ D ≤ 8 cm; 8cm ≤ H ≤ 18cm

### What students are saying

• 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.
