Oh right. Accepted!

comment Question on quadratic problem set
Wow, thank you! The reason why I omitted the actual area was because the problem just asked what the dimensions should be to have a maximum surface area.

What do you mean?

Great, thank you! I was just a little confused as to whether or not 2/3 was a correct value, but this is great!

So then why shouldn't I change my answer if it's impossible to solve?

Okay, thanks! You've been a great help.

Sorry if I'm not understanding this, but since y always has to be greater, wouldn't it still be y > x?

So what exactly should I change?

So sorry, I don't really understand why it doesn't make sense.

What is a sharp inequality?

comment Are these linear programming constraints correct?
But if I'm solving graphically, I would use the vertices, no? So it wouldn't matter if the line was y ≥ x or y > x since it would be the same line.

Ah, okay. Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's my way :)

What exactly is the other way?

But then y could be equal to x, and y is always greater.

Okay, sounds good. Thanks so much for your quick answer!

I think it's meant the way I interpreted it; I wouldn't worry.

Yes, but that's not what the restriction says, because x and y do not have to add up, only if she has to maximize her income.
