Unformatted text preview: volume is 32 cubic feet and the total surface area of the box is minimal. a) Determine the objective and constraint equations. b) Express the quantity to be minimized as a function of x (or h). c) Find the optimal values of x and h. • A canvas wind shelter has a back, two square sides, and a top. If 96 square feet of canvas is to be used, find the dimensions of the shelter for which the space inside the shelter (the volume) is maximized...
