 Question 107677: I have a fence wire 100M long nad wish to fence a rectangular piece of land on three sided ONLY. What is the maximum area I can fence and also the length and width. Please confirm the solution is correct. Thank you. Lenght =x Width = y x+2y=100 x= 100-2y Area = xy = (100-2y)y -2y^2+100y Completing squares -2(y-25)^2-(25x25) This is the vertex form and gives us the x intercept. That is the width is 25 and hence length is 50 Area is 1250 Is the answer correct. Click here to see answer by stanbon(57984)
