1. Find an equation of the line through the point (3,5) that cuts off the least area from the first quadrant.

2. The upper left-hand corner of a piece of paper 8in. long if folded over to the right-hand edge. How would you fold it so as to minimize the fold? In other words, how would you choose x to minimize y?

3. Where should the point P be chosen on the line sgment AB so as to maximize the angle theta?
