    MarkFL replied to a thread Radius of Circle in Pre-Calculus
    That is the radius of the circle after it has been increased by $a$ units. If I tell you that my weight increased by 20 lbs., then you know my...

    MarkFL replied to a thread Radius of Circle in Pre-Calculus
    Let's let $0<a$ be the number units the radius must be increased. And so the change in area we can write as: \Delta A=\pi(r+a)^2-\pi r^2=b Now...

    \overline{MK}=\sqrt{(\sqrt{2}a)^2+(\sqrt{2}b)^2}=\sqrt{2\left(a^2+b^2\right)}=\sqrt{2(50)}=\sqrt{100}=10 :D

    I arbitrarily chose another point on the constraint, so that we could do a comparison like I mentioned just now in the other thread. :D

    I chose the point as it is on the constraint. Using that point, we can determine if our one critical point is a maximum or a minimum. If the...

    I agree that the point $(2,2)$, is the only one that meets all criteria. Now we need to compare the value of $f$ at another point on the constraint,...
