Hello, 0017024651!
A farmer has 3,000 feet of fence to enclose a rectangular field
and subdivide it into 3 rectangular plots.
If denotes the width of the field and the length,
find the value of so that the total area of the field is maximized.Code:*-------*-------*-------* | | | | | | | | x| x| x| x| | | | | | | | | *-------*-------*-------* : - - - - - y - - - - - :
He has four fences which are feet long
. . and two fences which are feet long.
So total fencing is: . .[1]
The area of the field is: . .[2]
Substitute [1] into [2]: .
And that is the function we must maximize . . .
