Let x+y=c
Or,y=c-x
So xy=x(c-x)=cx-x2
Take derivative of xy wrt x.
d(xy)/dx=d(cx-x2)/dx=c-2x
For xy to be minimum,
c-2x=0
Or,x=c/2
Putting it in y=c-x we get
y=c/2.
So x=y
If it helps please approve.

That would be maximum in place of minimum.
You can essily check maxima condition by
d2(xy)/dx2=d(c-2x)/dx=-2
You can also  write x=c-y and take derivative of xy wrt y.You will arrive at the same result.
