    About the smallest possible and the largest possible value of x and y

    Given x and y are integeres such that -4<x<9 and 3 equals to or less than y and y is equal to or less than 8, find

    a) the smallest possible value of x^2 + y^2,

    b) the largest possible value of x + y over y.

    I appreciate your toil and kindness wholly. May God bless to you who solve my doubts.

    x = -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
    y = 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

    Minimum x^2 + y^2 = 0^2 + 3^2 = 9

    Maximum (x + y) / y = (8 + 3) / 3 = 11/3

    Both EVIDENT; is there more to your question?
