**MathMate**, Friday, February 24, 2012 at 1:43pmWhat is the largest possible total area of the four pens?

Let x=shorter side of the big rectangle.

and y=long side of the big rectangle

Fence required = 5x+2y=700 => y=350-5x/2

Total area of pens

A=xy

=x(350-5x/2)

To get the maximum area, we equate dA/dx=0

dA/dx = 350-5x = 0, or

x=70

y=350-5x/2 = 175

Maximum total area=xy=70*175=12250'
