    1. Minimize the perimeter of rectangles with area 25 cm^2 . Is there a maximum perimeter of rectangles with area 25 cm?
    2. Find two numbers whose difference is 100 and whose product is a minimum.
    3. If 1200 cm2 of material is available to make a box with a square base and an open top, find the largest possible volume of the box.
    4. Find the point on the line 6x+y=9 that is closest to the point (-3,1)(Check your answer with the grapher)
    5. Maximize the area of rectangles inscribed in the right triangle with lengths of sides 5, 12, and 13.
