Lecture no. 17 from the course: Understanding Calculus: Problems, Solutions and Tips
Taught by Professor Bruce H. Edwards | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Mathematics Courses
Conclude your investigation of differential calculus with additional problems in optimization. For success with such word problems, Professor Edwards stresses the importance of first framing the problem with precalculus, reducing the equation to one independent variable, and then using calculus to find and verify the answer.
