let one piece of string have length ... other piece will have length
let = piece forming a circle
, derive an expression for the circle area in terms of
= piece forming a square
= Perimeter of the square , derive an expression for the square area in terms of
total area, = circle area as a function of + square area as a function of
find and determine the value of that minimizes the total area
