comment Derive a formula for the volume of the wedge in terms of the constants a, b, c.
I'm having trouble connecting it to the 3rd dimension. Another similar triangle?

It is the vertical height from the $a$ line, parallel to $c$

Yes I believe so. I see the way I'm doing it now is not working

comment What is $\sum_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{n}{2^{\sqrt{n}}}$?
well maybe forget L'Hôpital

comment What is $\sum_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{n}{2^{\sqrt{n}}}$?
Could L'Hôpital's rule be applied? It is infinity over infinity. ALso, according to wolfram alpha "lim x->infinity sum (x/(2^sqrt(x)))" returns $51.919191....$

comment The minimum value of $\frac{a(x+a)^2}{\sqrt{x^2-a^2}}$
Oops. It was for an applied optimization problem. It didn't explicitly say "maximum," but I didn't want to include the extra info, just the derivative. I will edit
