a landscape architect plans to enclose a 3000 square foot rectangular region in a botanical garden. She will use shrubs costing $25 per foot along three sides and fencing costing $10 per foot along the fourth side. Find the minimum total cost.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I started off this problem by finding the lenght of the sides:

L=3000/w

W=3000/L

Then i determined that the total cost would be the cost of the lenght + cost of the width.

I am totally lost on this problem....
