A farmer has 1000ft of fence and wishes to enclose the largest possible area that has four individual square pens bordered by a rectangular pen of a different width on each end. what are the overall dimensions of the fence area with maximum square footage?

so far i thought i could set up the area equation to be A= 4(x^2) + 4xy and then take the derivative but im not getting the correct answer
