35. [4 marks] A cylindrical water trough is to be built of sheet-metal, with


a circular base of radius r and vertical sides of height h. The trough is open
at the top so that animals can drink out of it.
If the volume of the trough is to be 64π litres (which is just over 200 litres),
what is the optimal radius of the base, to minimise the area of metal required?
1
You may use the fact that a 1 litre = 1000
m3 .
