thats a multi-variable calc problem, maxima/minima problems are a common application of partial derivatives

You can solve it in calc I got these type of questions all the time last year. Not really wanting to do it though. I'll do it in the morning if no one figures it out.

Why not just buy 20 pigs? That would work.

I was thinking about using something liek that formula but I couldnt figure out how to set it up. I guess this means I should start on my summer work for calc but I have a feeling I wont be able to do it cuz I forgot how to do a lot of problems.
