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.
