    Hello dgen,


    A farmer has 100 yards of chicken wire that he can use to enclose a rectangular area for his chickens. What dimensions would give the farmer the largest area for his chickens? Experiment with different lengths and then determine the best dimensions.
    (The perimeter must add up to 100 yards.).


    The optimal rectangle would be a square 25 yds on each side.
