have done the calculus which reveals that the surface area is at a minimum when height is double the radius. I am now trying to find an equation for the relationship between the amount of wasted surface area as a percentage of the minimum surface area and the ratio between height and radius.
If I were to plot it on a graph, the y axis would be the percentage of excess materials needed as a percentage of the minimum possible surface area, and the x axis would be height divided by radius. Since the surface area is minimized when height=2(radius), I know that when x=2, y=0.
The website https://www.datagenetics.com/blog/august12014/index.html explains what I am trying to do quite well and shows the graph below. I am trying to find the equation for this graph, but am unsure how to go about it.
raphs into equations and equations into graphs. But what if you want a exponential or hyperbole graph to go through 2 specific points? How would you do it?
For example: https://www.desmos.com/calculator/xpbx7m6qml
How would I make an exponential or hyperbola graph to go through (9,2) and (15, 0.25)?
Please tell me step by step.
that models profit earned is D = n(54 – n) – 10n. I need to find the vertex of this equation, and what does the vertex tell me about this situation.. For what x-values is the function increasing? Decreasing? What does this mean in terms of daily profit for Water World? Rewrite the function in vertex form. . Solve the equation 0 = n(54 – n) – 10n for n. Describe your solution method. How are the solutions from part (e) related to the graph of this function? Are the solutions real or complex? How do you know? What do the solutions from part (e) tell you about this situation?
