Question: a piece of wire of length 20cm is cut into...

Question details

A piece of wire of length 20cm is cut into two sections, each used to form a square. The sum of the areas of these two squats is Scm^2. If one square has a side length of xcm express S in terms of x and hence determine how the wire should be cut for the sum of these areas to be a minimum.
