You have 92 feet of fencing to enclose a rectangular plot that borders on a river. If you do not fence the side alongthe river, find the length and width of the plot that will maximize the area.

If length along river is y, and width =x,
2x+y = 92
a = xy = x(922x)
This is a parabola with roots 0,46.
So, maximum value is reached at x=23.
So, the pen is 23x46
