I was assined a pop can project in calculus class that contained three parts. I did the first 2 parts with little to no trouble but I really need help on the third because I dont even know where to start. Plz help me as soon as possible!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

C.) When a 12 oz can is to be manufactured there is no waste involved in cutting the metal that makes the vertical sides of the can ( why?), but the top and bottom are made from square pieces of metal and the corners of the square are wasted. Find the dimensions of the most economical can ( remember that the square corner pieces are not used but would be part of the materials purchased to make the can.

PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME , I NEED TO FINISH SOON !!!
