Mr. Rogers wants to fence in a rectangular garden next to a straight section of the Scioto
River. He has 330 feet of fencing to do the entire job. He doesn’t need fencing along the
river, and there is a 4.5 foot wide clearance for a gate at one end.
What are the dimensions of the garden (x and y) with the largest area.

Thanks!
