 we know that


total area is let say one side X


and height is h


total area= 2x^2+4xh=250


then total volume is


x^2*h


so that we know


 h=250-2x^2


   ----------------


        4x


then we will find the volume which is


V=x^2*(250-2x^2)


   -----------------------


              4x


V=(250x-2x^3)/4


we will take the derivative with respect to x and equat to 0


250=6x


x=125/3


so that the base side will be 125/3

 whoa!


don't forget the h = 250 - 2x^2/4.


Since the h = 250 - 2x^2/4x 


then t will equal (250 - 2(6.45497)^2 )/ 4(6.45497) 


=  (250 - 83.333275) / 25.81988 = 6.45497 also


so the shape of the shelter will be a  cube. 


 


Note:  I have a problem with this because the 250 square feet will cover the shelter (the sides, back, and top), but in the calculations, I see all six sides have been used for the surface area. (250 = x^2 + x^2 + 4xh.)
