A package in the shape of a rectangular solid is to be mailed. The combination of the girth (perimeter of a cross section defined by w and h) and the length of the package is 60 in. The width is 4 in. greater than the height, and the length is 13 in. greater than the width. Find the dimensions of the package.
Let height = h w = h+4 l = w+13 = h+17 l + 2(w+h) = 60 h+17 + 2(h+4+h) = 60... View the full answer
