# 9) A tank with rectangular base and rectangular sides, open at the top is to be constructed so that its depth is 2 m and volume is 8 m3. If building of tank costs Rs 70 per sq metres for the base and Rs 45 per square metre for sides. What is the cost of least expensive tank?

Let l ,  b and h are length , breath and height of tank
Then, volume of tank = l X b X h = 8 h = 2m (given)
lb = 4 = Now,
area of base of tank = l X b = 4
area of 4 side walls of tank = hl + hl + hb + hb = 2h(l + b)
Total  area of tank (A) = 4 + 2h(l + b)  Now, Hence, b = 2 is the point of minima So, l = 2 , b = 2 and h = 2 m
Area of base =  l X B = 2 X 2 = building of tank costs Rs 70 per sq metres for the base
Therefore, for Rs = 4 X 70 = 280 Rs
Area of 4 side walls = 2h(l + b)
= 2 X 2(2 + 2) = building of tank costs Rs 45 per square metre for sides
Therefore, for Rs = 16 X 45 = 720 Rs
Therefore, total cost for making the tank is = 720 + 280 = 1000 Rs
