# Further Maths rates of change and second differentiation

1. No sure how about to start this. Help!
2. Lay out the information.

Sub into and differentiate it with respect to r. Make it equal 0 and solve for r. Check this gives the minimum and plugging it through the second differential.
3. if your not going to be helpful jog on or do you not have a life

But you literally posted the same thing on the other thread, no need for a duplicate.

so i got r as 1/300pi for the first differentiate

That is very helpful for everyone else, it avoids duplication of efforts
