1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I am given an 8cm by 8cm piece of paper. I have to cut out a square-based pyramid out of that that gives me the greatest volume. 2. Relevant equations I know that the volume is V = 1/3 * b^2 * h b = base h = height I know that the surface area is A = b^2 + 2bh 3. The attempt at a solution I slightly remember optimization. I only remember you need to combine the two but that's it?
