Im in Calc 1 and only know the Derivatives, Limits, and the MVT.

I need help with this problem.

A metal gutter is to have 10cm sides and a 12cm horizontal bottom, with the sides making equal angles with the bottom. How wide should the opening across the top be so that the gutter would have maximum carrying capacity? (Obviously the gutter is to make a Trapezoid.)
