**Steve**, Thursday, February 13, 2014 at 5:13amif the length is x and the width is y, then

2x+3y = 1200

a = xy = x(1200-2x)/3 = 400x - 2x^2/3

max area when x = 400*3/4 = 300

So, the field is 300 by 200

Note that as in all such problems, the fencing is divided equally among the lengths and widths.
