18. 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 doesnâ€™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.

Round your answer to the nearest tenth of a foot.
