A rectangular storage container with an open top
is to have a volume of 13 m image . The length
of its base is twice the width. Material for the
base costs 14 per square meter. Material for the
sides costs 13 per square meter. Find the cost
of materials for the cheapest such container.

The illumination of an object by a light source
is directly proportional to the strength of the
source and inversely proportional to the square
of the distance from the source. If two light
sources, one three times as strong as the other,
are placed 14 ft apart, how far from the stronger
source should an object be placed on the line
between the sources so as to receive the least
illumination? Round the result to the nearest
hundredth.
