###### Question details

A
piece of wire 15 ft long is cut into two pieces (see figure). One
piece is made into a circle and the other piece is made into a
square. Let the piece of length x be formed into a circle. To
minimize the sum of the areas enclosed by both figures, the wire
should be cut at x= 15pi/ 4+pi.
