Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if this means you have 120 feet for 3 sides, use half for side opposite free side and split the other half in two, so dimensions would be 60 by 30

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[x+2y=120\] \[x=1202y\] \[A=xy\] \[A(y)=y(1202y)=120y2y^2\] this is a parabola that opens down, max at vertex \[\frac{b}{2a}=\frac{120}{2\times 2}=30\] as promised
