  1. as usual, divide the fencing equally among lengths and widths. So, I'll go ahead and predict that the solution will be

    7500 x 15000

  2. oops. wrong problem.

    y = 60000/x

    p = 2x+4y = 2x + 4(60000/x)
    dp/dx=0 when x=200√3 and y=100√3

    p = 800√3

    But, as usual, the length is equally divided among lengths and widths.
