A wire 9 meters long is cut into two pieces. One piece is bent into a square for a frame for a stained glass ornament, while the other piece is bent into a circle for a TV antenna. To reduce storage space, where should the wire be cut to minimize the total area of both figures? Give the length of wire used for each:

For the square?

For the circle?

Where should the wire be cut to maximize the total area? Again, give the length of wire used for each:

For the square?

For the circle?
