a farmer wishes to fence off a rectangular field with 1,000 feet of fencing.if the long side of the field is along a stream, express the area of the field as a function of its width

  • yetf8edfueidcyt87e -

    width --- w
    length --- l
    l + 2w = 1000
    l = 1000 - 2w

    area = w l
    = w(1000 - 2w)
