**Algebra - Math**, Saturday, July 16, 2011 at 4:56pmHi Ms. Sue,

Can you tell me how you came up with those dimensions, so I can understand the problem. Thank you T. Adams

**Ms. Sue**, Saturday, July 16, 2011 at 4:59pmA square gives the largest area.

You need 4 lengths of fence -- 1 parallel to the river and 3 perpendicular to the river. If each fence were 25 yards long -- then the perimeter of the two pens together is 100 yards.

**T. Adams**, Saturday, July 16, 2011 at 6:45pmo.k. but the question asked what should the dimensions of the ten pens together be in order to yield the largest possible area - wouldn't that be 1250 feet? I guess I am still confused. Thank you. T. Adams

Each pen is 12.5 * 25.
