Larry has 36 sections of wooden fencing. Each section is 6 feet long. He plans on using all the sections to surround a rectangular pasture. What is the area of the largest pasture he could create

The largest area would be a square.
36 * 6 = 216 feet of fencing
216/4 = 54 feet on each side
A = 54^2
A = 2,916 square feet
