**MathMate**, Tuesday, April 26, 2011 at 11:30pmLet x be the shorter side.

Longer side = (54-3x)/2 = 27-1.5x

Area, A = x(27-1.5x)=27x-1.5x²

To get maximum area, diff. w.r.t. x and equate to zero.

dA/dx = 27-3x=0

x=9m

longer side = 27-9*1.5=13.5m

The dog run is 9m by 13.5 m total

Total area= 121.5 m²
