One of these sides is made up of the barn, so you can eliminate either one L or one W. A square ordinarily would give you the maximum area, but the side of the barn used can vary without adding to the fence used.

If one side is 50, the other two sides would be 25 to form a rectangle. From that, you can determine the area.
