## Homework Statement

If a box with a square base and an open top is to have a volume of 160 cubic feet, find the dimensions of the box having the minimum total surface area. Use calculus to find the solution.

## Homework Equations

If X are the sides of the base, and Y is the height of the box, what would be the formula to find surface? How can the minimum surface be calculated using derivative applications?

## The Attempt at a Solution

Surface = minimum possible
