#1**-1 **

My 'stab' at it:

Surface area will be the are of the square bottom PLUS the 4 rectangular sides

s = side width and square side

square area = s^2

h = height of rectngle area surface area of the 4 sides = s x h x 4 = 4 sh

4sh + s^2 = area

Volume = s x h x s = s^2h = 1372 cm^3

h = 1372/s^2

4 s 1372/s^2 + s^2 = area

5488/s + s^2 = area

s^2 + 5488 (s^-1) = area Take derivative and set = 0 to find the minimum (not SURE about this step)

2s - 5488 s^-2 = 0

5488 s^-2 = 2s

5488 = 2 s^3

2744 = s^3 s = 14 and s x h x s = 1372 then h = 7

surface area then = 14 x14 + 4 x 7 x 14 = 196+4*7*14 = 588 cm^2

What is the minimum surface area that suc---

wat?

Is it just me or Do i not get it...
