Good question! 2X+2Y could be equal to lots of things: your question is to find the _minimum_ they can be equal to. For example, we know xy=400 so x=5, y = 80 works for that. Then 2x + 2y = 10 + 160 = 170. That is one answer. x=10, y=40 also gives us xy=400. Then 2x + 2y = 20...

You've done the hard part, so you're probably just over-thinking it! :-) When x=2, plug 2 into that equation of the circle, and what do you get? x^2 -4x + y^2 -6y =12 4 - 8 + y^2 -6y = 12 y^2 -6y -16 = 0 and solve for y. Same method works for getting the points where y=3.
