I could just say a square with 125 ft. per side is the largest area he can get. but I bet you would want proof.

Here is the proof: Let x=one side, so the opposite is also x Amount of fence left is 500-2x so that will be divided between the other two opposite sides. 250-x = other side. A= (x)(250-x)=-x^2 + 250x Now we differentiate and set to equal zero -2x+250=0 (max/min) -2x=-250 x=125
