How could you find the measurements of the garden with a perimeter of 60 feet and the greatest possible area?

4th grade math  Ms. Sue, Sunday, February 12, 2012 at 6:01pm
P = 2L + 2W
A = LW
If the garden is a square >> 60 / 4 = 15
Area = 15 * 15 = 225 sq. ft.
Let's try a different set of dimensions.
A = 10 * 20
A = 200 sq. ft
