Homework question

  1. Oct 18, 2004 #1
    This is in my Calc BC class, a homework question from the maximums and minimums section. Can someone solve it please? I know the answers but my work doesnt look too good. Thanks a lot.

    Find the dimensions of the isosceles triangle of least area that can be cirumscribed about a circle of radius R.

    the answers are:
    height= 3R

    Was there a reason for posting this under differential equations? It would be better in the Homework section. Oh- and while your work may not "look too good", it would help if you showed what work you did.
