QUESTION 6 open A vase made of glass of uniform thickness has a square base of side x cm and a fixed volume of 192 cm3. This vase is to be made of two different types of coloured glass joined together, the upper portion being glass with a floral motif, and the lower to be glass of a solid colour. The height of the floral upper portion of the vase is to be twice the height of the solid coloured lower portion. Let the height of the solid coloured portion be h cm. Additionally, the cost of the glass with the floral motif is 1.5 times the cost of the solid coloured glass (you may ignore the thickness of the glass and the cost of joining the two types of glass). x x

(a) Show that the height of the solid coloured portion is given by h !
