x2 + 1/x2 = a

(x - 1/x)2 + 2 = a         ...............1

x-1/x = b

 

a/b = (x-1/x) + 2/(x-1/x)

put , x-1/x = t then

a/b = t + 2/t          .............2

 now dufferentiating this eq wrt t & putting it to 0 we get 

t = + or - root2

 

so , at t = root2 ,

 a/b =  root2 + 2/root2 = 2root2     

,this is the minimum value
