Help please! A farmer has 120 feet of fencing available to build a rectangular pen for her pygmy goats. She wants to give them as much room as possible to run. What are the dimensions of the rectangular pen with the largest area?

the largest possible rectangle will be a square (all sides are equal) so if she has 120 feet of square fencing, then each of the 4 sides will be 30 feet each so 30ft * 30 ft.
