A rectangular garden is fenced on three sides with a wall forming the fourth side. the total length of the fence is 70m. the area if the garden is 600m^2. find the dimensions of the garden.
LW = 600 (1)
L + 2W = 70 or W = (70 - L)/2 (2)
Substitute 2 into 1 and solve for two possible answers.
1. A rectangular pen will be built using 100 feet of fencing. What dimensions will maximize the area?
Which length and width are possible dimensions for the garden
