Thank you!

**bobpursley**, Monday, December 1, 2008 at 7:07pmCalculus I assume?

Length*Width= 625

fencelenght= 2L + 3W

W= 625/L

fencelength= 2L+ 3*625/L

d fl/dl= 0=2 -3*625/L^2

or L= sqrt (3/2 * 625)

and W= 625/sqrt (3/2 625)

Now, if you are in algebra, I dont see any way of working this except graphing

fencelength=2L -325/L and looking for the minimum.
