hey...can you please help me with this question!...
A rod with isoscelestriangular cross section is machines from a cylindrical steel rod of diameter 2cm. the strength of the rod is directly proportional to the product of the base of the triangle and the square of the height of the triangle. What are the dimensions of such a rod that has maximum strength?
thank you for any help
