Minimum cost. From a tract of land, a developer plans to fence a rectangular region and
then divide it into two identical rectangular lots by putting a fence down the middle.
Suppose that the fence for the outside boundary costs per foot and the fence for the
middle costs per foot. If each lot contains square feet, find the dimensions of
each lot that yield the minimum cost for the fence.
