A carpenter is building a rectangular room with a fixed perimeter of 284 ft. What dimensions would yield the maximum area? what is the maximum area?

OpenStudy (radar):

I believe the max area would be a square rectangle with sides of 71 ft for an area of 5,041 sq ft.

OpenStudy (radar):

Do you have to use calculus finding maxima?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

No

OpenStudy (anonymous):

can u find the width

OpenStudy (radar):

Width is 71, length is 71, it would be a square.

OpenStudy (radar):

Take the perimeter and divide by 4 to find the equal sides for the square.

OpenStudy (anonymous):
