**Reiny**, Tuesday, March 20, 2012 at 9:06amlet the width be x

and the length be y

2x + 2y = 40 or

x+y=20 ---> y = 20-x

Area = xy = x(20-x

= 20x - x^2

Are you in Calculus?

Then the solution is very easy

If not in Calculus, complete the square of this quadratic, again a very basic problem.

Let me know what you get.
