Ok, so I did a test today for advance functions and there was a question: the volume of a pop can is 350ml, find the minimum surface area and determine the dimensions.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Where I got stuck:

350=pi(r)^2*h

h=350/pi(r)^2

SA= 2pi(r)^2+2pi(r)(h)

SA= 2pi(r)^2+2pi(r)(350/pi(r)^2)

=(2(pi(r)^3+350))/(pi(r))

I'm stuck here :S
