10) The sum of the perimeter of a circle and square is k, where k is some constant. Prove that the sum of their areas is least when the side of square is double the radius of the circle.

It is given that
the sum of the perimeter of a circle and square is k = 2\pi r + 4a = k\Rightarrow a = \frac{k - 2\pi r}{4} 
Let the sum of the area of a circle and square(A) = \pi r^2 + a^2
A = \pi r^2 + (\frac{k-2\pi r}{4})^2
A^{'}(r) = 2\pi r + 2(\frac{k-2\pi r}{16})(- 2\pi)\\ A^{'}(r) = 0\\ 2\pi (\frac{8r-k-2\pi r}{8}) = 0\\ r = \frac{k}{8-2\pi}
Now,
A^{''}(r) = 2\pi (\frac{8-2\pi }{8}) = 0\\ A^{''}(\frac{k}{8-2\pi}) > 0
Hence, r= \frac{k}{8-2\pi} is the point of minima
a = \frac{k-2\pi r}{4} = \frac{k-2\pi \frac{k}{8-2\pi}}{4}=2 \frac{k}{8-2\pi} = 2r
Hence proved that the sum of their areas is least when the side of the square is double the radius of the circle
