is that right im just gessing
Let's see --
it could be 5 + 5 + 5 + 5
or 4 + 4 + 6 + 6
or 3 + 3 + 7 + 7
Find the areas of these pens.
A = length times width
So -- a 3 foot by 7 foot pen would be 21 square feet.
Find the areas of the other two pens. Which gives you the most square feet?
For a math question:
Make a table of width (W) and lengths (L) that add up to 20 for perimeter = 2(W+L).
Calculate the area for each line. Choose the biggest area.
Width Length Area
1 9 9
2 8 16
3 7 21
4 6 24
8 2 16
9 1 9
For a calculus question:
Let W=width, then
For maximum or minimum:
dA/dW=10-2W=0, or W=5
d²A/dW²=-2 <0 so maximum.
A(5)=5(10-5)=25 (maximum area)
hi im only in 4th grade so i really kind of need simple answers
Please see my answer. I'm sure you can figure out your answer using that information.
thanks ms.sue u rock
You're welcome, Alex. :-)
