a)Draw the illustration of the problem
b) express the length of the remaining side to be fenced in terms of x.
c)what are the restrictions of x?
d)determine the values of x that will give an area between 30,000 and 40,000 feet squared.

Just take it step by step.
total fence: 640
two parallel sides: 2x
b) remaining side: 6402x
c) obviously 6402x>0 ==> x < 320
d) 30000 < x(6402x) < 40000
56 < x < 85 approx
e) max area approx 51000 at x=160
f) a = x(6402x)
