**Reiny**, Sunday, March 3, 2013 at 12:01amIf the original rectangle is x m wide and y m long

then the partitions are x m as well

so we have

2y + 4x = 400

y + 2x = 200

y = 200 - 2x

Area = xy

A = x(200-2x) = 200x - 2x^2

dA/dx = 200 - 4x = 0 for a max of A

200 = 4x

x = 50

then y = 200 - 100 = 100

if x = 50 and y = 100, we get a maximum area

which is xy or 50(100) = 5000 m^2
