Posted by Callie on Tuesday, December 9, 2008 at 8:35pm.

i am working with completing the square in parabolas and there's this word problem i just cannot solve..a farmer wants to make a rectangular corral along the side of a large barn and has enough materials for 60m of fencing. Only 3 sides must be fenced, since the barn wall will form a 4th side. What width of rectangle should the farmer use so that the maximum area is enclosed?.. please help!:(
