**16. Sand is pouring from a pipe at the rate of 12 cm ^{3}/s. The falling sand forms a cone on the ground in such a way that the height of the cone is always one-sixth of the radius of the base. How fast is the height of the sand cone increasing when the height is 4 cm ?**

**Solution:**Let r be the radius, h be the height and V be the volume of the sand cone.

**24. Show that of all the rectangles inscribed in a given fixed circle, the square has the maximum area.**

** Solution :** Let length of rectangle be x and breadth of rectangle be y.

**28. A factory makes tennis rackets*,and cricket bats. A tennis racket takes 1.5 hours of machine time and 3 hours of craftsman’s time in its making while a cricket bat takes 3 hours of machine time and 1 horn1 of craftsman’s time. In a day, the factory has the availability of not more than 42 hours of machine time and 24 hours of craftsman’s time. If the profit on aracket and on a bat is Rs 20 and Rs 10 respectively, find the number of tennis rackets and circket bats that the factory must manufacture to earn the maximum profit. Make it as an L.P.P. and solve graphically.**

** Solution: **Let x be the number of tennis rackets and y that of cricket bats produced in one day in the factory.
