Question:

Ravi has a board that is 3 feet long. He plans to use it to make 4 shelves whose lengths are to be a series of consecutive even numbers. How long should each shelf be in inches?

Vishal C.
Answer:

Being consecutive even numbers, we need to add 2 to the previous number. Assign variables: Let x= length of the first shelf x+2= length of the second shelf x+4= length of the third shelf x+6= length of the fourth shelf Convert three feet to inches \$\$3*{12} = 36\$\$ Sum of four shelves is 36 x + x + 2 + x + 4 + x + 6 = 36 Combine like terms 4x + 12 = 36 Isolate variable x 4x = 36 - 12 4x = 24 x = 6 So, the lengths of the shelves in inches should be 6, 8, 10 and 12.

Question:

If the hypotenuse of the right triangle is given, show that the area is maximum when the triangle is isosceles?

Vishal C.
Answer:

Let the two sides and hypotenuse be x, y and c respectively. now, according to Pythagoras, \$\$x^{2} +y^{2}=c^{2}\$\$ Now, differentiating with respect to x, we have, 2x+2yy'=0 y'= -x/y Area of the triangle: \$\$A= (x*y)/2\$\$ Now, differentiating the area, we have, dA/dx= [xy'+y]/2 =0 xy'+y = 0 Substituting the value ofy', we have, x(-x/y) + y = 0 \$\$y= x^{2}/y\$\$ \$\$y^{2} = x{2}\$\$ y=x so, the triangle should be isosceles.
