A farmer has $3600 to spend on fencing for three adjoining rectangular pastures, all with the same dimensions. A local contracting company tells the farmer that they can build the fence for $6.25/m. What is the largest total area that the farmer can have fenced for that price?

I could really use some help on this problem, please help!
