    Perhaps because it's not $\sqrt{1000}$ as you implied.

    Huh? I posted this:
    "On a timed test, with a few seconds to go,
    easy for an unsuspecting(!) student to reason
    "since square produces maximum area,
    then 333 1/3...."

    What I'm (apparently unclearly!) saying is split the 1000 fence
    in 3 portions of 333 1/3 instead of the correct (250,250,500)
    thus creating a square with sides 333 1/3.
