So...how should i do it? Does it matter which of the 'three sides' they are talking about?? I don't seem to get the question... Please help!

Let x be length and y be width,

then Area = xy

Area = 320y

- Help with maths! -
**PsyDAG**, Friday, June 19, 2009 at 11:38amThe maximum area would be a square, so let x be the length of one side.

3x = 320 and

x^2 = area

Area ≠ 320y

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
