only 3 things can multiply together to equal 16 1 x 16 = 16 4 x 4 = 16 8 x 2 = 16 if those pairs of numbers were added together which would give the smallest sum? 1 + 16 = 17 4 + 4 = 8 8 + 2 = 10 therefore 4 and 4 are the two numbers that give the smallest sum and are both multipliable to 16

Do you know calculus? You can show that if you optimize a box with side lengths x and y, you get that x=y is the optimized length.
