### Applied Optimization

- I recommend just about always starting with a sketch!
- Remember to get your function down to a function of a single variable.
- Remember to check the endpoints as well as the critical points!
- Include units on your final result.

I am really confused on how you moved the -1/5 to the other side to become 5/3. I understand how you got 5/3, by moving -1/5 to the other side, multiplying it by 5 and then dividing by 3. But don't you also need to multiply by 5 to both sides of the equation? Because I have been taught what you do one side to the equation you must do to the other.

I really enjoy your lectures! Thank you!

Are you using Stewart Calculus? because the order of your lectures matches the order of the chapter.
