x and x - 12 represent lengths (assumed to be in cm)...and so must be positive. Lengths cannot be negative, and if we are to actually have two pieces...

At this point you can multiply through by 8 to get: x^2-12x+32>0 Then factor: (x-4)(x-8)>0 Now solve this inequality, subject to:

Your next step should be: (L-W)^2=0 So, how must L and W be related in order for this to be true?

No, what we want is: A\left(W_1\right)+A\left(W_2\right)>5 A(x)+A(12-x)>5 Now, the arguments for the area function represent wire lengths,...

1. Happy birthday, caffeinemachine!
2. Yes caffeinemachine, I have a different solution of my own. I would have posted it along with johng's yesterday, but I was in a hurry, as I needed to get other things done. I might post it later today.
3. Thank you! It's been a bit hectic, what with moving to Kansas, and all. But I did have a great birthday.
4. Hi caffeinemachine. Very sorry that this is happening. Could you make a thread in our feedback forum describing what is happening when you get a moment? We will try to fix it ASAP.
5. My interests lie in dispersive wave equations and geometric analysis. You have a pretty interesting combination: combinatorics and geometry. So will you do combinatorial geometry or geometric combinatorics?
6. Hi caffeinemachine! I just wanted to wish you a happy birthday, and I hope you're having a great time.
7. Hey, just wanted to thank you. I didn't know the command \widehat existed until I saw you using it in your question about modules. Hope you get an answer, haha.

Best wishes.
8. Happy Birthday, my friend!
9. Hi AK,

I wish you luck, happiness, health and safety today, tomorrow and beyond...

As you look back on yesterday, may your memories be warm ones. As you celebrate today, may your heart be filled with happiness and joy. As you look ahead to tomorrow, may your deepest hopes and dreams come true for you!

I wish that for every extra candle on your cake, you receive an extra reason to smile. Happy Birthday to you!
10. Hi, I'm currently traveling but will get back to you later today. Thank you for your patience!
