I have two questions.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A) Show the parallelipided with fixed surface area and maximum volume is a cube.

I've already proven that we can narrow down the proof to a box. So, basically, I'm really lost on how do prove that a cube is the box with a fixed surface area and maximum volume.

B) We might not have covered how to do part B yet, so i'll create a new topic if I still don't understand after tomorrow's lecture.
