# Optimisation Problem

Could you please explain what the person means by "vanishing determinant condition," and how he derives that $h=2\sqrt{(2r+R)(r+2R)} $

and also please explain the second case because I don't understand why he says "return to the cartesian system" and how he gets those equations.

Here's the website again: https://math.stackexchange.com/questions/4024363/optimizing-a-conical-frustum-using-partial-differentiation/4024472#4024472

Thanks a lot!
