Max./Min. Examples 1.) Find two nonnegative numbers whose sum is 100 and so that the product of one and the
square of the other is a maximum. 2.) Build a rectangular pen with three parallel partitions using 500 feet of fencing. What
dimensions will maximize the total area ? 3.) An open rectangular box with square base is to be made from'75 in} of material. What
dimensions will result in the largest possible volume ? 4.) A container in the shape of a right circular cylinder with no top has surface area 37: ft.2
What height h and base radius r will maximize volume ? 5.) A sheet of cardboard 3 ft. by 4 ft. will be made into a box by cutting equalsized squares from each corner and folding up the edges. What will be the dimensions of the box with largest
volume ? 6.) Consider all triangles formed by lines passing through the point (8/9, 3) and both the x and
yaxes. Find the dimensions of the triangle with the shortest hypotenuse. 7.) Find the point (x, y) on the graph of y = J)? nearest the point (4, O). 8.) A cylindrical can is to hold 201: in.3 The material for the top and bottom costs lngE/in.2 and
material for the sides costs 8¢/in.2 Find the radius r and height h of the most economical can. 9.) You are standing at the edge of a river which is one mile wide. You can swim at 2 mph and
walk at 3 mph. You must swim across the river and walk to a point on the opposite bank which is 3 miles from the point directly across the river from you. What route will take the least
amount of time ? 10.) Construct a window in the shape of a semi—circle over a rectangle. If the distance around the outside of the window is 12 feet, what dimensions will result in the rectangle having largest
possible area ? 11.) There are 50 apples trees in an orchard. Each tree produces 800 apples. For each additional tree planted in the orchard, the output per tree drops by 10 apples. How many trees
should be added to the existing orchard in order to maximize the total output of apples ? 12.) Find the dimensions of the rectangle of largest area which can be inscribed in the closed
region bounded by the xaxis, yaxis, and graph of y = 8~x 3. 13.) Three hundred books are sold for $40 each. For each $5 increase in price, 25 fewer
books are sold. What price per book will maximize total revenue ? ...
