A farmer will be adding a rectangular corral to his barn. He has 600 feet of fencing. The part of the barn that is attached to the corral is 150 feet long.
Write a function for the area of the corral, A(x) and include the domain
Find the answers for both 'x' and 's'
pre calculus -
dunno what "s" is.
So, is one side of the corral (along the barn) 150' long?
If so, then if the other dimension is x, the A(x) = 150x
Since 150+2x = 600,
x = 225
As described above, the problem is trivial, so please clarify.
