A norman window is shaped like a rectangle surmounted by a semicircle. Suppose the semicircular part is made of colored glass while the rectangular part is made of clear glass. The colored glass transmits only half as much light per square foot as the clear glass.
If the window is to have a perimeter of 30 feet, what dimensions for the window maximize the light transmitted?
