Hi! I'm working on my homework. I need a little help with this question. Does someone mind helping?
You have 1200 feet of fencing and you want to make two fenced in enclosures by splitting one enclosure in half. What are the largest dimensions of this enclosure that you could build?
125 ft x 200 ft
100 ft x 105 ft
300 ft x 200 ft
105 ft x 120 ft

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2w = width and l = length 3w + 2l = 1200 w*l = area If you isolate the first equation for l, you get: l = 600  3/2w Then you could plug this into the second equation to get a parabolic formula. By finding the maximum value through either graphing or completing the square, you could find the maximum area.
