Minimizing Area word problem...Help?

A 24-in piece of string is cut into two pieces. One piece is used to form a circle wile the other is used to form a square. How should the string be cut so that the sum of the areas is a minimum?

I'm having a hard time setting this one up. Would anyone be willing to help me? Thank you in advance.
