A piece of wire 25 m long is cut into two pieces. One piece is bent into a square and the other is bent into a circle. (a) How much of the wire should go to the square to maximize the total area enclosed by both figures? ANS= 0 m *** (b) How much of the wire should go to the square to minimize the total area enclosed by both figures?

if you want a guess i would say put everything in to the circle and forget about the square
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh sorry you already answered that
anonymous
  • anonymous
probably all in the square to minimize rigth? just a guess though

that's my guess too, but, i'll bring mathematica out again ;-)

yeah, mathematica says to put 100% into the square

In[940]:= Minimize[{\[Pi]r^2 + x^2, 4 x + 2 \[Pi]r == 25}, {r, x}] Out[940]= {1/16 (625 - 100 \[Pi]r + 20 \[Pi]r^2), {r -> 0, x -> 1/4 (25 - 2 \[Pi]r)}}

How much of the wire should go to the square to minimize the total area enclosed by both figures? i think it requires a numerical answer
anonymous
  • anonymous
all of it. 25 m
anonymous
  • anonymous
it says it's incorrect :S
anonymous
  • anonymous
hmm
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh now i get x=3.5, that's one side of the square
anonymous
  • anonymous
sorrry, still incorrect T___T;
anonymous
  • anonymous
well it's 4 times that i just gave you one side
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohh, i did the area (3.5)^2 instead of (3.5)*4. thanksss
anonymous
  • anonymous
did it say that was right?

(b) How much of the wire should go to the square to minimize the total area enclosed by both figures? The exact answer is:\[\frac{100}{4+\pi } \text{ meters}\]or 14.002479 meters to 8 digits.

Take the derivative of the expression of interest\[D\left[\left(\frac{x}{4}\right)^2+\frac{(25-x)^2}{4 \pi },x\right] \]set it to zero\[-\frac{25-x}{2 \pi }+\frac{x}{8}==0 \]and solve for x.\[x\to \frac{100}{4+\pi } \]A plot is attached.

Using Mathematica's Minimize function:\[\text{Minimize}\left[ \left\{\left(\frac{x}{4}\right)^2+\frac{(25-x)^2}{4 \pi }\right\},x\right]\to \]\[\left\{\frac{2500+\frac{40000}{(4+\pi )^2}+\frac{10000 \pi }{(4+\pi )^2}-\frac{20000}{4+\pi }}{16 \pi },\left\{x\to \frac{100}{4+\pi }\right\}\right\}\text{ //N} \]
