You have 92 feet of fencing to enclose a rectangular plot that borders on a river. If you do not fence the side alongthe river, find the length and width of the plot that will maximize the area.

  • Math -

    If length along river is y, and width =x,

    2x+y = 92

    a = xy = x(92-2x)

    This is a parabola with roots 0,46.
    So, maximum value is reached at x=23.

    So, the pen is 23x46
