Determine the maximum number of students that can fit in a room given the height and the width of the room.
This question cannot be answered. There are no details provided. I had it returned for you to provide the same but you did not.
Given width of room say W and height H. Let us assume length of the room be L and room is in form of cubiod.
Define area of the floor as a function of L and W i.e.
`A(L,W)=L xx W`
and Volume of the room
If relation between L and W are known to us then A(x,y) can be transformed into a single variable function either in L or W .
Now let hypothetically assume that average area `S(x,y)` required for sitting an individual is known . Then we find min/max number of students with respect to sitting constraints i e. area of the floor of the room . If we know how much air reqired for each students ,then we can set constraints volume of the room.
Define Lagranges function
We can find relation between W and Y or X and W .
Solve for `L,x and lambda` above system of equations.
By this method you can estimate min /max .
