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.
e a look at this spreadsheet so I can properly explain:
Ok, so for the sake of simplicity We'll just go with row two here. Cell A2 represents the hours worked freelancing, where B2 is for the minutes of the recorded time frame. C2 is the net amount earned in that time. Over in cell N10 I need to figure out an equation using the =SUM() function (treats it as a normal math problem) where it prints the hourly income based on those three integers. I'll admit i was never great at math, but in my defense I've been up since 6 am yesterday (currently 3 pm) and have been running solely on caffiene and nicotine haha... The sheet is editable and I can see any changes you make in realtime. Is there any way you could help me out on this one? It's for a work report type thing.
ason ski pass costs $400. The skier would have to rent skis with either pass for $25 per day. How many days would the skier have to go skiing in order to make the season pass less expensive than the daily passes? Im just trying to figure out the meaning of this question.
