need to enclose a field with a fence. We have 500 feet of fencing
material with a building on one side of the field where we will not need
any fencing. Determine the maximum area of the field that can be
enclosed by the fence.
rectangular box with a square base and no top has a volume of 500 cubic
inches. Find the length,
of the edge of the square base and height,
for the box that requires the least amount of material to build. Conduct
two iterations using an initial guess of l=5 in
