Homework Help: Calculus

Posted by Amy on Sunday, February 5, 2012 at 7:30pm.

A man has 340 yards of fencing for enclosing two separate fields, one of which is to be a rectangle twice as long as it is wide, and the other, a square. The square field must contain at least 100 square yards and the rectangular one must contain at least 800 yards.

(a.) If X is the width of the rectangular field, what are the maximum and minimum values of X?

(b.) What is the greatest number of square yards that can be enclosed in the two fields?

If you know how to answer even part of this question, that would be so helpful. Thank you so much :x :X
