# A farmer wishes to enclose a rectangular field of area 450 ft using an existing wall as one of the sides. The cost of the fence for the other 3 sides is $3 per foot. How do you find the dimensions that minimize the cost of the fence?

The cost function is:

The dimensions of the field:

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
