describe the largest pen area possible using the same amount of fencing in 6'X14' area. How do the perimeter and area compare to the pen above?

    the largest area for a given perimeter is a square.

    Since the perimeter of a 6x14 pen is 40, the side of a square would be 10.

    10x10 = 100
    6x14 = 84
