Homework Help: Calculus 2

Posted by Henry on Wednesday, April 10, 2013 at 1:12pm.

A farmer wishes to build a fence for 6 adjacent rectangular pens. If there is 600 feet of fencing available, what are the dimensions of each pen that maximizes total pen area?

I keep getting x=150 but I have been told that is not enough fencing. Can anyone help?
