Question

Mailing a Package The post office will accept only

packages for which the length plus the “girth” (distance

around) is no more than 108 in. Thus for the package in the

figure, we must have

L 21x y2 108

(a) Will the post office accept a package that is 6 in. wide,

8 in. deep, and 5 ft long? What about a package that

measures 2 ft by 2 ft by 4 ft?

(b) What is the greatest acceptable length for a package that

has a square base measuring 9 in. by 9 in.?
