From Darlene: Question from Darlene, a parent:
A farmer has 10,000 meters of fencing to use to create a rectangular field. He
plans on using some of the fencing to divide the rectangular field into two
plots of land by constructing a fence inside the rectangle that is parallel to one
of the sides. Let X be the width of the rectangular field. Write an equation
to express the area of the field as a function of X. Find the value of X that
maximizes the area of the field. Answered by Penny Nom.
