First you have to make an equation for this question, do you have an idea?

- anonymous

Yes. I know that 3x+2y=1200

- Shirley27

w = 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.
