A) 'w' cannot be negative , so the largest area will occur when w = 0 526 m^2 (which is kinda comical having a w = 0 )

Are you__ sure __you have the equation written correctly ???? Please proofread ....because none of these answers make sense!

B) -2 (20^{2}) + 576 = _____________ (nonsensical answer)

C) 18 144 = - 2 w^{2} + 576 (another nonsensical answer)
