 Question 271986: Can someone please help me with this word problem: The area of a rectangle with the perimeter 100 in. is given by the formula: A=50w-w^2 where w is the width. Find the value of w that produces the maximum area. the only way i could try to figure this out is to make columns with the length and width dimensions that equal 100 in perimeter and plug the width into the equation. I started using the width of 45 and worked down to 30 which has the area of 600. But since a square is also a rectangle, do I use 25? Is there an easier way to figure this? Thanks Click here to see answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(18980)
