Hi(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am having a lot of trouble with this problem. I don't actually know where to begin.

A box with a square base and open top must have a volume of 62,500 cm3. Find the dimensions of the box that minimize the amount of material used.

Need to find:

sides of base cm

height cm

Thanks
