 Question 537035: a farmer has 500 feet of fence with which to enclose a rectangular field. a striaght river bank will be used as a part of fencing on one side of the field.prove that area of the field is greatest when the rectangle is square?Answer by Alan3354(30993)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!It isn't. Using 500 ft for 3 sides --> (500/3)^2 sq ft =~ 27,778 sq ft. Making it 150 by 200 --> 30,000 sq ft. ----------- So it's disproven.
