You have say length and width of the printable area as x and y respectively.. then xy = 50 .. Now you have total length and width (including margins) as (x + 2*4) and (y + 2*2) respectively. You need to minimize (x + 2*4)(50/x + 2*2). Differentiate this wrt x to get x = 10 and y = 5 ..

dude I gave you the dimensions of the printing area ... now add 4*2 and 2*2 to the respective dimensions to get the net dimension = 18 and 9
