Thats 15 sq. feet (according to me)


let the length of the part of base, not included in side of Rectangle be X both side and the vertical side length be Y......


 


Now the rectangle has side lengths, Y and 10-2X.......


now use similar triangle property to find relation b/w Y and X


i.e. Y=6X/5


Hence area = XxY = 6X/5x(10-2X)


Use dA/dX=0 to get X=5/2


Therefore, A=15................Cool

Let A be any matrix such that A2=0 matrix then does it implies A is a zero matrix?
 
 
Not at all. Consider A = 0 1 0 0 It is not zero but A^2=0. Amit Jain IITD AskIITians

Not necessarily. If A 2 = 0, then such matrix A is known as Nilpotent Matrix. e.g. A = 0 1 0 0 This matrix A is not equal to zero but A 2 will be equal to zero.

solve: xcosydy=(xe^xlogx+e^x) dx
 
 
soln: xcosydy=(xe^xlogx+e^x) dx x cosy dy = (x e x logx + e x ) dx cosy dy = e x (logx + 1/x) dx integrate both sides siny = e x logx + c (const.)
