Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So are we to assume that the cow can go around the 2ft wall and continue eating grass? So effectively, the rope is 6 feet at that point?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If so, then the maximum area needed is that of a circle with perimeter of 20 ft, that's radius of \(\large \frac{10}{\pi}\) and area \(\large \frac{100}{\pi} \text{ft}^2\).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It looks like the cow can eat a halfcircle of grass with radius 8ft, and then another halfcircle of grass with radius 6ft. That's: 1/2*Pi*8*8 + 1/2*Pi*6*6 = 50 Pi =~ 157.08 square feet of grass

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Correction: the 6ft rope should centered at the west edge of the fence, not where the cow is.
