**Steve**, Wednesday, August 29, 2012 at 1:14amThe farmer can buy $2400 / $6.25/m = 384m of fence. 384m/2 = 192m for each of the 2 rectangular pastures. A square is the rectangle with the largest area for a given perimeter, so each square will have sides of 192m/4 = 48m. Each pasture will thus have area of 48m x 48m = 2304 sq.m, and so the total area for both pastures will be 2304 x 2 = 4608 sq. m.
