Homework Help: calculus?

Posted by lola on Saturday, July 14, 2012 at 11:29am.

I want a rectanglular pen with area = 50 square feet and to save on fencing I will build it next to the garage. How should I design it so I use the least amount of fence-only 3 sides will be needed next to the garage. How can I figure out that I have found the maximum area for the pen?
Thanks much!
