A rectangular tank with a square base, an open top, and a volume of 6912 ft^2 is to be constructed of sheet steel. Find the dimensions of the tank that has the minimum surface area.

Let s be the length of one of the sides of the square base and let A be the surface area of the tank. Write the objective function.

A= _____ (type an expression)

The tank with the minimum surface area has a height of ___ ft and a square base with a sidelength of ___ ft.

Step 1

Given tank is open at top.

So, the surface area is,

Step 2

Find the minimum surface...
