What's the best way to solve this?

- college algebra -
**JJ**, Wednesday, February 20, 2013 at 5:52pmThe best way to do it is using calculus, but you are in college algebra.

You are looking for length + width + width = 1000 feet because you don't need any for the river side.

L + 2w = 1000 or L = (1000 - 2w)

A = lw

A = (1000-2w)(w)

A = 1000w - 4w^2
