A piece of wire of length 63 is cut, and the resulting tow pieces are formed to make a circle and a square. Where should the wire be cut to (a) minimize and (b) maximize the combined area of the circle and the square? (a) Let x be the amount of wire used for the circle. What is the function A, the combined ara of the circle and square in terms of x? A= ______ (type an expression, type the exact number using pi as needed) To minimize the combined area, the wire should be cut so that a length of ____ is used for the circle and a length of ____ is used for the square. (round to nearest thousandth) (b) To maximize the combined area, the wire should be cut so that a length of ____ is used for the circle and a length of ____ is used for the square. (round to nearest thousandth)

Question

A piece of wire of length 63 is cut, and the resulting tow pieces are formed to make a circle and a square. Where should the wire be cut to (a) minimize and (b) maximize the combined area of the circle and the square?

(a) Let x be the amount of wire used for the circle. What is the function A, the combined ara of the circle and square in terms of x?

A= ______ (type an expression, type the exact number using pi as needed)

To minimize the combined area, the wire should be cut so that a length of ____ is used for the circle and a length of ____ is used for the square. (round to nearest thousandth)

(b) To maximize the combined area, the wire should be cut so that a length of ____ is used for the circle and a length of ____ is used for the square. (round to nearest thousandth)
