C (x) = 0.007 x3 – 0.003 x2 + 15x + 4000.
Find the marginal cost when 17 units are produced.

Marginal cost is the rate of change of total cost with respect to output.
Now C (x) = 0·007 x3 – 0·003 x2 + 15x + 4000.

= (0·007) (3x2) – 0·003 (2x) + 15
When x = 17, MC = (0·007) (3(17)2) – 0·003 (2 (17)) + 15
= 6·069 – 0·102 + 15 = 20·967.
Hence, the reqd. marginal cost is ₹ 21 (nearly).

= 26x + 26.
When x = 7, MR = 26 (7) + 26
= 182 + 26 = 208.
Hence, the reqd. marignal revenue is ₹ 208.

For f (x) to be strictly increasing function of x :
f′ (x) > 0 i.e. 6x2 – 6x – 36 > 0
$⇒$ x2 – x – 6 > 0
$⇒$ (x – 3) (x + 2) > 0
$⇒$ (x – (– 2)) (x – 3) > 0

$⇒$ x2 – x – 6 < 0
$⇒$ (x – 3) (x + 2) < 0

(II) For f (x) to be strictly decreasing function of x,
f ′ (x) < 0
i.e.if 2x + 2 < 0 i.e., if x < – 1.
Hence, ‘f ’ is strictly decreasing in (– $\infty$,–1).

##### Question 27:

Find the intervals in which the following functions are strictly increasing or decreasing :
10 – 6x – 2x2

We have : f (x) = 10 – 6x – 2x2.

i.e. if – 6x2 – 18x – 12 > 0
i.e. if x2 + 3x + 2 < 0
i.e. if (x + 2) (x + 1) < 0
i.e. (x – (– 2)) (x – (– 1) < 0
i.e. if – 2 < x < – 1.
Hence, ‘f’ is srictly increasing in (– 2, – 1).
(II) For f (x) to be strictly decreasing function of x,
f′ (x) < 0
i.e. if – 6x2 – 18x – 12 < 0
i.e. if x2 + 3x + 2 > 0
i.e. if (x + 2) (x + 1) > 0
i.e. if (x – (– 2)) (x – (– 1) > 0

Find the intervals in which the following functions are strictly increasing or decreasing :
(x + 1)3 (x – 3)3.

We have : f (x) = (x + 1)3 (x – 3)3.
$\therefore$ f′ (x) = (x + 1)3 . 3(x – 3)2 + 3 (x + 1)2 (x – 3)3
= 3 (x + 1)2 (x – 3)2 [(x + 1) + (x – 3)]
= 3 (x + 1)2 (x – 3)2 (2x – 2)
= 6 (x + 1)2 (x – 3)2 (x – 1).
(I) For f (x) to be strictly increasing function of x,
f ′ (x) > 0
i.e.if 6 (x + 1)2 (x – 3)2 (x – 1) > 0
i.e.if x – 1 > 0 [$\because$ 6 (x + 1)2 (x – 3)2 > 0]
i.e.if x > 1.
But f′ (x) = 0 at x = 3.
Hence, ‘f ’ is strictly increasing in (1, 3) ∪ (3, $\infty$).
(II) For f (x) to be strictly decreasing function of x,
f ′ (x) > 0
i.e.if 6 (x + 1)2 (x – 3)2 (x – 1) > 0
i.e.if x – 1 < 0 [$\because$ 6 (x + 1)2 (x – 3)2 > 0]

Find the least value of ‘a’ such that :
f (x) = x2 + ax + 1 is strictly increasing on (1, 2).

We have :
f (x) = x2 + ax + 1.
$\therefore$ f′ (x) = 2x + a.
Now 1 < x < 2
$⇒$ 2 < 2x < 4
$⇒$ 2 + a < 2x + a < 4 + a
$⇒$ 2 + a < f′ (x) < 4 + a.
For f (x) to be increasing, f′ (x) $\ge$ 0
$⇒$ 2 + a $\ge$ 0
$⇒$ a $\ge$ – 2.
Hence, the least value of a is – 2.

When x = – 1, then from (1),
y = – 1 – 3 + 9 + 7 = 12.
When x = 3, then from (1),
y = 27 – 27 – 27 + 7 = – 20.
Hence, the reqd. points are (– 1, 12) and (3, – 20).

##### Question 57:

Find the point on the curve y = (x – 2)2, at which the tangent is parallel to the chord joining (2, 0) and (4, 4).

The given curve is :
y = f(x) = (x – 2)2 ...(1)
$\therefore$ f′ (x) = 2 (x – 2).

$⇒$ 2x – 4 = 2
$⇒$ 2x = 6
$⇒$ x = 3.
When x = 3, then from (1), y = (3 – 2)2 = 1.
Hence, the reqd. point is (3, 1).

The given curve is :
y = x3 – 11x + 5 ...(1)

Slope of the line = 1.

Thus 3x2 – 11 = 1 $⇒$ 3x2 = 12
$⇒$ x2 = 4 $⇒$ x = ± 2.
When x = 2, then from (1),
y = 8 – 22 + 5 = – 9.
When x = – 2, then from (1),

Slope of the tangent = 2 (x – 1).
Slope of the line 2x – y + 9 = 0 is 2.
Since the tangent is parallel to the given line,
$\therefore$ 2 (x – 1) = 2 [$\because$ m1 = m2 ]
$⇒$ 2x = 4 $⇒$ x = 2.
Putting in (1),y = 4 – 4 + 7 = 7.
$\therefore$The equation of the tangent at (2, 7) parallel to
2x – y + 9 = 0 is :
y – 7 = 2 (x – 2) $⇒$ 2x – y + 3 = 0
$⇒$y – 2x – 3 = 0.

##### Question 69:

Find the equation of the tangent line to the curve y = x2 – 2x + 7, which is :
perpendicular to the line 5y – 15x = 13.

Slope of the tangent = 2 (x – 1).
Slope of the line 5y – 15x = 13 is 3.
Since the tangent is perp. to the given line,

$⇒$ x1 = 0, x1 = ± 1.
When x1 = 0, then from (2),
y1 = 0.
When x1 = 1, then from (2),
y1 = (1) – 2 (1) = 2.
When x1 = – 1, then from (2),
y1 = 4 (– 1)3 – 2 (– 1)5
= – 4 + 2 = – 2.
Hence, the reqd. points are (0, 0), (1, 2) and (– 1, – 2).

$⇒$ y2 = 4 $⇒$ y = ± 2.
Hence, the reqd. points are (1, ± 2).

##### Question 74:

Find the equation of the normal to the curve ay2 = x3 at (am2, am3).

The given curve is ay2 = x3

##### Question 75:

The given curve is :
y = x3 + 2x + 6 ...(1)

When x = 2, then from (1),
y = 8 + 4 + 6 = 18.
When x = – 2, then from (1),
y = – 8 – 4 + 6 = – 6.
Thus the co-ordinates of the points are (2, 18) and (– 2, – 6).
$\therefore$ The equations of the normals are :

$⇒$ 14y – 252 = – x + 2 and 14y + 8y = – x – 2
$⇒$ x + 14y – 254 = 0 and x + 14y + 86 = 0.

We require (x + dx)1/3.
Now $∆$y = (x + $∆$x)1/3 – x1/3
= (0·008 + 0·001)1/3 – (0·008)1/3
= (0·009)1/3 – 0·2

Let y = x1/4 , x = 16,
dx = – 1 so that x + dx = 15.
We require (x + dx)1/4.
Now $∆$y = (x +$∆$ )1/4 – x 1/4
= (16 − 1)1/4 – (16)1/4
= (15 )−1/4 – 2
$⇒$(15)1/4 = 2 + $∆$y.
Now $∆$y is approximately equal to :

(26)1/3

y = x1/3, x = 27
and dx = – 1 so that x + dx = 26.
We require (x + dx)1/3.
Now $∆$y = (x + $∆$y)1/3 – x1/3

(255)1/4

y = x1/4, x = 256, dx = – 1 so that x + dx = 255.

Now $∆$y = (x +$∆$x)1/4 – x1/4
= (256 − 1)1/4 – 4 = (255)1/4 −4
$⇒$(255)1/4 = 4 + $∆$y.

##### Question 97:

Find the approximate value of f (2·01), where :
f (x) = 4x2 + 5x + 2.

Let x = 2 and $∆$x = 0·01 ...(1)
Then f (2·01) = f (x + $∆$x)
= 4 (x + $∆$x)2 + 5 (x + $∆$x) + 2.
Now $∆$y = f (x + $∆$x) – f (x)
$⇒$ f (x + $∆$x) = f (x) + $∆$y
= f (x) + f′ (x) $∆$x [$\because$ dx = $∆$x]
$\therefore$ f (2·01) = (4x2 + 5x + 2) + (8x + 5) $∆$x
= (4 (2)2 + 5 (2) + 2) + (8 (2) + 5) (0·01)
[Using (1)]
= (16 + 10 + 2) + (16 + 5) (0·01)
= 28 + 0·21 = 28·21.
Hence, approximate value of f (2·01) = 28·21.

##### Question 98:

Find the approximate value of f (5·001), where :
f (x) = x3 – 7x2 + 15.

We have : f (x) = x3 – 7x2 + 15.
$\therefore$ f′ (x) = 3x2 – 14x.
Now f (x + $∆$x) = f(x) + $∆$x f′ (x)
= (x3 – 7x2 + 15) + $∆$x (3x2 – 14x).
Taking x = 5 and $∆$x = 0·001, we get :
f (5·001) = (5)3 – 7 (5)2 + 15) + (0·001) (3 (5)2 – 14 (5))
= (125 – 175 + 15) + (0·001) (75 –70)
= – 35 + (0·001) (5)
= – 35 + 0·005 = – 34·995.

= (3x2) $∆$x
= (3x2) [0·01x] [$\because$ 1% 0f x = 0⋅01x]
= 0·03 x3 m3.
Hence, the approximate change in the volume
= 0·03 x3 m3.

Let ‘r’ be the radius of the sphere and $∆$r be the error in measuring the radius.
Then r = 9 m and $∆$r = 0·03 m.
Now S, the surface area of the sphere is given by :
S = 4$\mathrm{\pi }$r2

= (8$\mathrm{\pi }$ (9)) (0·03) = 2·16$\mathrm{\pi }$ m2.
Hence, the approximate error in calculating the surface area is 2·16$\mathrm{\pi }$ m2.

Find the maximum and minimum values, if any, of the following functions given by :
f (x) = (2x – 1)2 + 3

We have : f (x) = (2x – 1)2 + 3.
Since (2x – 1)2 $\ge$0,

Max. value of f (x) does not exist.

##### Question 107:

Find the maximum and minimum values, if any, of the following functions given by :
f (x) = 9x2 + 12x + 2

We have : f (x) = 9x2 + 12x + 2
= (3x + 2)2 – 2.
Min. value of (3x + 2)2 = 0
$\therefore$ Min. value of f (x) = – 2.
Max. value of f (x) does not exist.

##### Question 108:

Find the maximum and minimum values, if any, of the following functions given by :
f (x) = – (x – 1)2 + 10

We have : f (x) = – (x – 1)2 + 10.
Max. value of – (x – 1)2 = 0.
$\therefore$ Max. value of f (x) = 10.
Min. value of f (x) does not exist.

We have : f (x) = sin 2x + 5.
Max. value of sin 2x =1
$⇒$ Max. value of sin 2x + 5 =1 + 5 = 6.
Min. value of sin 2x =– 1
$⇒$ Min. value of sin 2x + 5 = – 1 + 5 = 4.

##### Question 113:

f (x) =| sin 4x + 3 |

We have : f (x) = | sin 4x + 3 |.
Max. value of sin 4x= 1
$⇒$ Max. value of | sin 4x + 3 | = | 1 + 3 | = | 4 | = 4.
Min. value of sin 4x= – 1
$⇒$ Min. value of | sin 4x + 3 | = | – 1 + 3 | = | 2 | = 2.

##### Question 114:

h (x) = x + 1, x $\in$ (– 1, 1).

We have :h (x) = x + 1.
As x $\to$ $\infty$, h (x) $\to$ $\infty$.
As x $\to$$\infty$, h (x) $\to$$\infty$.
Thus there is no max. and min. value.
However, when x = 1, h (x) = 2
when x = – 1, h (x) = 0.
Hence, max. value is 2 and min. value is 0.

##### Question 115:

Find the local maxima and local minima, if any, of the following functions. Find also the local maximum and the local minimum value, as the case may be :
f (x) = x2

We have : f (x) = x2.
$\therefore$ f′ (x) = 2x, f ″ (x) = 2.
Now f′ (x) = 0 $⇒$2x = 0 $⇒$ x = 0.
And f″ (0) = 2 (+ ve)
Hence, local minimum value at x = 0,
local min. value = f(0) = 0.

##### Question 116:

Find the local maxima and local minima, if any, of the following functions. Find also the local maximum and the local minimum value, as the case may be :
g (x) = x3 – 3x

We have : g (x) = x3 – 3x.
$\therefore$ g′ (x) = 3x2 – 3, g″ (x) = 6x.
Now g′ (x)= 0 $⇒$ 3x2 – 3 = 0 $⇒$ x2 = 1
$⇒$ x = ± 1.
And g″ (1) = 6 (1) = 6 ( + ve) and
g″ (– 1) = 6 (– 1) = – 6 ( – ve)
Hence, local minimum value is, at x = 1, local min. value =
g (1) = 1 – 3 (1) = – 2.
Local maximum value is, at x = – 1, local max. value
= g (– 1) = (– 1)3 – 3 (– 1) = – 1 + 3 = 2.

##### Question 117:

Find the local maxima and local minima, if any, of the following functions. Find also the local maximum and the local minimum value, as the case may be :

We have h (x) = sin x + cos x.
$\therefore$ h′ (x) = cos x – sin x and
h′′ (x) = – sin x – cos x.
Now h′(x) = 0 $⇒$ cos x – sin x = 0
$⇒$ sin x = cos x $⇒$ tan x = 1

Find the local maxima and local minima, if any, of the following functions. Find also the local maximum and the local minimum value, as the case may be :
f (x) = sin x – cos x, 0 < x < 2$\mathrm{\pi }$

We have : f (x) = sin x – cos x.
$\therefore$ f′ (x) = cos x + sin x
and f″ (x) = – sin x + cos x.
Now f′ (x) = 0
$⇒$ cos x + sin x= 0 $⇒$ sin x = – cos x

##### Question 119:

Find the local maxima and local minima, if any, of the following functions. Find also the local maximum and the local minimum value, as the case may be :
f (x) = x3 – 6x2 + 9x + 15

We have : f(x) = x3 – 6x2 + 9x + 15.
$\therefore$ f′ (x) = 3x2 – 12x + 9
and f ″ (x) = 6x – 12.
Now f ′ (x) = 0 $⇒$ 3x2 – 12x + 9 = 0
$⇒$ x2 – 4x + 3 = 0
$⇒$ (x – 1) (x – 3) = 0 $⇒$ x = 1, 3.
And f ″ (1) = 6 (1) – 12 = – 6 (– ve),
f ″ (3) = 18 – 12 = 6 (+ ve)
Hence, local max. is at x = 1, local max. value
= 1 – 6 + 9 + 15 = 19.
Local min is at x = 3, local min. value
= 27 – 6 (9) + 9 (3) + 15
= 27 – 54 + 27 + 15 = 15.

##### Question 123:

Prove that the following functions do not have maxima or minima :
f (x) = ex

We have : f (x) = ex.
$\therefore$ f ′ (x) = ex.
Now f ′ (x) = 0
$⇒$ ex= 0,
which gives no real value of x.
Hence, f (x) does not have maximum or minimum values.

##### Question 124:

Prove that the following functions do not have maxima or minima :
f (x) = log x

We have f (x) = log x.

which gives no real value of x.
Hence, f (x) does not have maximum or minimum values.

##### Question 125:

Prove that the following functions do not have maxima or minima :
f (x) = x3 + x2 + x + 1.

We have : f (x) = x3 + x2 + x + 1.
$\therefore$ f′ (x) = 3x2 + 2x + 1.
Now f′ (x) = 0
$⇒$ 3x2 + 2x + 1 = 0

which are non-real.
Hence, f (x) does not have maximum and minimum values.

##### Question 126:

Find the absolute maximum value and the absolute minimum value of the following functions in the given intervals :
f (x) = x3, x $\in$ [– 2, 2]

We have : f (x) = x3, x $\in$ [– 2, 2].
$\therefore$ f′ (x) = 3x2.
For extreme values,
f′ (x) = 0 $⇒$ 3x2 = 0
$⇒$ x = 0 $\in$ [– 2, 2].
Now f (– 2) = (– 2)3 = – 8
f (0) = (0)3 = 0
and f (2) = 23 = 8.
Hence, absolute max. value is 8,which is attained at x = 2
and absolute min. value is – 8, which is attained at
x = – 2.

##### Question 127:

Find the absolute maximum value and the absolute minimum value of the following functions in the given intervals :
f (x) = sin x + cos x, x $\in$ [0, $\mathrm{\pi }$]

We have : f (x) = sin x + cos x, x $\in$ [0, $\mathrm{\pi }$].
$\therefore$ f′ (x) = cos x – sin x.
For extreme values,
f′ (x) = 0
$⇒$ cos x – sin x= 1
$⇒$ sin x = cos x

##### Question 128:

We have :

##### Question 129:

Find the absolute maximum value and the absolute minimum value of the following functions in the given intervals :
f (x) = (x – 1)2 + 3, x $\in$ [– 3, 1].

We have :
f (x) = (x – 1)2 + 3, x $\in$ [– 3, 1].
$\therefore$ f′ (x) = 2 (x – 1).
For extreme values, f ′ (x) = 0
$⇒$ 2 (x – 1) = 0
$⇒$ x – 1 = 0 $⇒$ x = 1 $\in$ [– 3, 1].
Now f (– 3) = (– 4)2 + 3 = 16 + 3 = 19
and f (1) = (0)2 + 3 = 0 + 3 = 3.
Hence, absolute max. value is 19, which is attained at x = – 3.
and absolute min. value is 3, which is attained at x = 1.

##### Question 130:

Find the maximum profit that a company can make, if the profit function is given by :
p (x) = 41 – 24x – 18x2

p (x) = 41 – 24x – 18x2.
$\therefore$ p′ (x) = – 24 – 36x and p″ (x) = – 36.
Now p′ (x) = 0
$⇒$ – 24 – 36x = 0 $⇒$ 3x = – 2

##### Question 131:

Find both maximum value and minimum value of 3x4 – 8x3 + 12x2 – 48x + 25 in the interval [0, 3].

We have :
f (x) = 3x4 – 8x3 + 12x2 – 48x + 25.
$\therefore$ f′ (x) = 12x3 – 24x2 + 24x – 48.
Now f′ (x) = 0
$⇒$ 12x3 – 24x2 + 24x – 48 = 0
$⇒$ x3 – 2x2 + 2x – 4 = 0
$⇒$ x2 (x – 2) + 2 (x – 2) = 0
$⇒$ (x2 + 2) (x – 2) = 0
$⇒$ x = 2.
$\therefore$ f (0) = 25
f (2) = 3 (16) – 8 (8) + 12 (4) – 48 (2) + 25
= 48 – 64 + 48 – 96 + 25
= 121 – 160 = – 39.
f (3) = 3 (81) – 8 (27) + 12 (9) – 48 (3) + 25
= 243 – 216 + 108 – 144 + 25
= 376 – 360 = 16.
Hence, max. value is 25 and min value is – 39.

##### Question 132:

At what point in the interval [0, 2$\mathrm{\pi }$] does the function sin 2x attain its maximum value ?

We have :
f (x) = sin 2x, 0 ≤ x ≤ 2$\mathrm{\pi }$
so that f′ (x) = 2 cos 2x, 0 < x < 2$\mathrm{\pi }$.
Now f′ (x)= 0
$⇒$ 2 cos 2x= 0, 0 < x < 2$\mathrm{\pi }$
$⇒$ cos 2x = 0, 0 < x < 2$\mathrm{\pi }$

##### Question 133:

What is the maximum value of the function sin x + cos x ?

We have :
f (x) = sin x + cos x ; x $\in$ [0, 2$\mathrm{\pi }$] (say)
$\therefore$ f ′ (x) = cos x – sin x.
For extreme values, f ′ (x) = 0
$⇒$ cos x – sin x= 0
$⇒$ sin x = cos x $⇒$ tan x = 1

##### Question 134:

Find the maximum value of 2x3 – 24x + 107 in the interval [1, 3]. Find the maximum value of the same function in [– 3, – 1].

We have :
f (x) = 2x3 – 24x + 107, x $\in$ [1, 3].
$\therefore$ f′ (x) = 6x2 – 24.
(i) For extreme values, f′ (x) = 0
$⇒$ 6x2 – 24 = 0
$⇒$ x2 = 4 $⇒$ x = ± 2
$⇒$ x = 2 $\in$ [1, 3].
Now f (1) = 2 (1) – 24 (1) + 107
= 2 – 24 + 107 = 85
f (2) = 2 (8) – 24 (2) + 107
= 16 – 48 + 107 = 75
and f (3) = 2 (27) – 24 (3) + 107
= 54 – 72 + 107 = 89.
Hence, max. value = 89, which is attained at x = 3.
(ii) We have :
f (x) = 2x3 – 24x + 107,x $\in$ [– 3, – 1].
$\therefore$ f′ (x) = 6x2 – 24.
For extreme values,
f ′ (x) = 0
$⇒$ 6x2 – 24 = 0 $⇒$ x2 – 4 = 0 $⇒$ x2 = 4
$⇒$ x = ± 2 $⇒$ x = – 2 $\in$ [– 3, – 1].
Now f (– 3) = 2 (– 27) – 24 (– 3) + 107
= – 54 + 72 + 107 = 125
f (– 2) = 2 (– 8) – 24 (– 2) + 107
= – 16 + 48 + 107 = 139
f (– 1) = 2 (– 1) – 24 (– 1) + 107
= – 2 + 24 + 107 = 129.
Hence, max. value = 139,
which is attained at x = – 2.

##### Question 135:

It is given that at x = 1, the function x4 – 62x2 + ax + 9 attains its maximum value in the interval [0, 2]. Find the value of ‘a’.

We have : f (x) = x4 – 62x2 + ax + 9.
$\therefore$ f′ (x) = 4x3 – 124x + a
and f″ (x) = 12x2 – 124.
Now f′ (1) = 0 [Given]
$⇒$ 4 (1) – 124 (1) + a = 0
$⇒$ a = 120.
Now f ″(1) = 12 (1) – 124 = – 112 < 0.
Thus f (x) attains its maximum value at x = 1, where a = 120.
Hence, a = 120.

##### Question 136:

Find the maximum and minimum values of :
x + sin 2x on [0, 2$\mathrm{\pi }$].

We have : f (x)= x + sin 2x.
$\therefore$ f′ (x) = 1 + 2 cos 2x.
Now f′ (x) = 0
$⇒$ 1 + 2 cos 2x = 0

##### Question 137:

Let x and y be two numbers.
By the question, x + y = 24 ...(1)
Let the product, P = xy
$⇒$ P = x (24 – x)
$⇒$ P = 24 – x2.

##### Question 138:

We have :
x + y = 60 ...(1)
Let P = xy3
= x (60 – x)3 [Using (1)]

##### Question 139:

We have : x + y = 35 ...(1)
Let P = x2y5
= x2 (35 – x)5.

##### Question 140:

Find two positive numbers whose sum is 16 and the sum of whose cubes is minimum.

Let ‘x’, and ‘y’ be the two positive numbers.
By the question, x + y = 16

Let S = x3
+ y3 = x3 + (16 – x)3.

##### Question 141:

A square piece of tin of side 18 cm is to be made into a box without top by cutting a square from each corner and folding up the flaps to form a box. What should be the side of the square to be cut off so that the volume of the box is maximum ?

Let ‘x’ cm, be the side of the square cut from each corner.

Length of the resulting box = 18 – 2x ;
Breadth of the resulting box = 18 – 2x ;
Height of the resulting box = x.
$\therefore$ Volume = (18 – 2x)2. x
Let V (x) = x (18 – 2x)2.
$\therefore$ V′ (x) = x.2 (18 – 2x) (– 2) + (18 – 2x)2 (1)
= (18 – 2x) [– 4x + 18 – 2x]
= (18 – 2x) (18 – 6x).
For max./min. volume, V′ (x) = 0
$⇒$ (18 – 2x) (18 – 6x) = 0
$⇒$ x = 9 or x = 3.
But x = 9 is impossible.
[$\because$ The whole of thin sheet will be cut off]
Thus x = 3.
Now V″ (x) = (18 – 2x) (– 6) + (18 – 6x) (– 2)
= – 108 + 12x – 36 + 12x
= 24x – 144.
$\therefore$V″ (x = 3) = 24 (3) – 144
= 72 – 144 = – 72,
which is – ve.
$\therefore$V (x) is max. when x = 3.
Hence, the length of the side of the square cut off from each corner = 3 cm.

##### Question 142:

A rectangular sheet of tin 45 cm by 24 cm is to be made into a box without top, by cutting off square from each corner and folding up the flaps. What should be the side of the square to be cut off so that the volume of the box is maximum ?

Let ‘x’ cm. be the side of the square cut off from each corner.
Length of the resulting box = 45 – 2x.

Breadth of the resulting box = 24 – 2x.
Height of the resulting box = x.
$\therefore$Volume, V = (45 – 2x) (24 – 2x) x
= 2x (45 – 2x) (12 – x).
$\therefore$ V (x) = 2 (2x3 – 69x2 + 540x).
$\therefore$ V′ (x) = 2 (6x2 – 138x + 540)
= 12 (x2 – 23x + 90).
For max. / min., V′= 0
$⇒$ 12 (x2 – 23x + 90) = 0
$⇒$ (x – 5) (x – 18) = 0
$⇒$ x = 5, 18.
But x =18 is impossible.
$\therefore$ x = 5.
Also V″ (x) = 12 (2x – 23).
$\therefore$ V″ (5) = 12 (10 – 23)
= (12) (– 13) = – 156 < 0
Thus x = 5 for max. value.
Hence, length of the side of the square cut off for each corner is 5 cm.

##### Question 143:

Show that of all rectangles inscribed in a given fixed circle the square has the maximum area.

Let ‘x’ and ‘y’ be the length and breadth of the rectangle, which is inscribed in a fixed circle of radius ‘a’.
Then x2 + y2 = (2a)2
$⇒$ x2 + y2 = 4a2 ...(1)
Now A, the area of the rectangle = xy

Show that the right circular cylinder of given surface and maximum volume is such that its height is equal to the diameter of the base.

$\therefore$Surface area, S = 2$\mathrm{\pi }$r2 + 2$\mathrm{\pi }$rh

##### Question 145:

Of all closed cylindrical cans (right circular) of a given volume of 100 cubic centimetres, find the dimensions of the can which has the minimum surface area.

##### Question 146:

A wire of length 28 cm is to be cut into two pieces. One of the pieces is to be made into a square and other into a circle. What could be the lengths of the two pieces so that the combined area of the square and the circle is minimum ?

Let one piece be x m.
$\therefore$ Other piece is (28 – x) m.
Let ‘x’ metres be made into a circle and (28 – x) metres be made into a square.
$\therefore$ 2$\mathrm{\pi }$r = x

##### Question 147:

Let the cone ABC be inscribed in a sphere of radius R.

##### Question 150:
