# A piece of wire 10 m long is cut into two pieces. One piece is bent into a square and the other is bent into an equilateral triangle. How should the wire be cut so that the total area enclosed is maximum?

The triangle should have

We know the perimeter of the two shapes combined will be the amount of wire, 10 m.

Look for critical values.

Hopefully this helps!

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
