How could you find the measurements of the garden with a perimeter of 60 feet and the greatest possible area?

  • 4th grade math -

    P = 2L + 2W

    A = LW

    If the garden is a square >> 60 / 4 = 15
    Area = 15 * 15 = 225 sq. ft.

    Let's try a different set of dimensions.

    A = 10 * 20
    A = 200 sq. ft
