 Question 136441: I can't seem to solve this problem that should be easy. I'm blocked and need to figure out how to solve it. A person is building a storage area with 10 short walls of x length and 2 long walls of y length. (This looks like a long row of rectangles with y being the total length of all of them together) The total wall length will be 500ft. For the first part of the problem I was supposed to find a formula for area in terms of x so I used A=xy which turned into x=A/y Then I set up the equation to start finding then lengths of x and y. So I set up 10x + 2y = 500 and solved for x which is x=50 - 1/5y So what now? I have a complete mental block and need to know where to go or what I have done wrong to get myself confused up to now.
