Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Here is the proof: Let x=one side, so the opposite is also x Amount of fence left is 5002x so that will be divided between the other two opposite sides. 250x = other side. A= (x)(250x)=x^2 + 250x Now we differentiate and set to equal zero 2x+250=0 (max/min) 2x=250 x=125
