A company plans to manufacture a rectangular container with a square base, an open top, and a volume of 214 cm3. The cost of the material for the base is 0.3 cents per square centimeter, and the cost of the material for the sides is 0.5 cents per square centimeter. Determine the dimensions of the container that will minimize the cost of manufacturing it. What is the minimum cost?

Step 1

Let the side of the square base be *x* and the height and breadth of the side rectangles be *y* and *x* respectively. Given that the volume is 214. Form an equation using these facts as follows.

Step 2

Obtain the dimension that minimizes the cost by computing the first der...
