**drwls**, Sunday, July 6, 2008 at 7:44amThen L*W = 352 and

2(L + W) = 60

Solve the two simultaneous equations. Let L = 352/W

2(352/W +W) = 60

(352/W) + W = 30

W^2 - 30W + 352 = 0

There is no real solution. 60 yards of fencing is not enough to enclose 352 sq. yards. You need at least 75 yards
