Richard is building a rectangular playground from 200 feet of fencing. The fencing must entirely enclose the playground. What is the maximum area of this playground?

I don't understand

It can be shown that the max area is when each side of the rectangle = 200/4 = 50ft

 

So...the rectangle is a square

 

So.....the max area is 50^2  =   2500 ft^2

 

cool cool cool
