We find the greatest value α1 and α2, and the least values β1 and β2, such that the double inequalities α1S(a,b) + (1 − α1) A(a,b) < T(a,b) < β1S(a,b) + (1 − β1) A(a,b) and \(S^{\alpha_{2}}(a,b)A^{1-\alpha_{2}}(a,b)< T(a,b)< S^{\beta_{2}}(a,b)A^{1-\beta_{2}}(a,b)\) hold for all a,b > 0 with a ≠ b. As applications, we get two new bounds for the complete elliptic integral of the second kind in terms of elementary functions. Here, S(a,b) = [(a2 + b2)/2]1/2, A(a,b) = (a + b)/2, and \(T(a,b)=\frac{2}{\pi}\int\limits_{0}^{{\pi}/{2}}\sqrt{a^2{\cos^2{\theta}}+b^2{\sin^2{\theta}}}{\rm d}\theta\) denote the root-square, arithmetic, and Toader means of two positive numbers a and b, respectively.
