## fozia one year ago A rectangular picture frame with total area 50000 cm2 includes a border which is 1 cm thick at the top and the bottom and 5 cm thick at the left and right side. What is the largest possible area of a picture that can be displayed in this frame?

draw a picture |dw:1371797342461:dw| you know the area of the picture + frame is 5000 so $5000 = l \times w$ make w the subject so $w = \frac{l}{5000}$ and you know the area of the pictues is $A_{p} = ( l - 10)(w - 2)$ substitute w $A_{p} = (l - 10)(\frac{l}{5000} - 2)$ you now have an area equation in one unknown find the 1st derivative. set it to 0 and solve for l. this should given the necessary dimensions
