i have 50 feet of fence and the house will be the fourth side. i want a rectangular fence as big as possible. what re the dimensions?

    I assume largest area.

    area= wl
    area= (50-2l)l
    area= 50l-2l^2

    darea/dl= 0= 50-4l
    l=12.5, and w=25. In reality, one cannot adjust the size of a house to fit the area enclosed.
