The maximum area occurs when the fencing is divided equally among lengths and widths. For all 4 sides fenced, that is a square. In this case, with the length parallel to the wall, we have length=500/2 = 250 and width = 500/2/2 = 125 so the area is 250*125 = 31,250 This is ...

what you mean is 2 <= x <= 5 This is just a parabola, with vertex at (2,-1). So, clearly, f(2) = -1 is the minimum value. The axis of symmetry is at x = 2, so f(5) will be the max on the interval [2,5], since it is away from the axis.
