Optimization with Calculus 3

Using what one learned about finding the minimum and maximum of functions, the optimization problem to find two numbers whose product is -16 and whose sum of squares is a minimum is solved. Sal starts by writing the equations and defining them in terms of only one variable, then finds the minimum point by using the first derivative, and finally proves he has a minimum point by finding the second derivative.
