Homework 1/14/16

Do problems 1 – 6 on the attached file.

For each problem, let x be one number and let y be the other.

Write the equations described in the problem, usually two relationships.  Identify the one that has to be optimized, i.e. maximized or minimized.  Circle this one and write it over in terms of one variable, by eliminating one variable utilizing the other given relationship.

This homework must be given in to me in class tomorrow, or scanned over to me before that.  I want to see each problem set up, at the very least, and solved in most cases.  Everything you do or don’t do in this class counts.
