After cutting a uniform strip of width x out of the forest we remain with an area of (1 - 2 x )(2 - 2 x ) of forest; hence we need to solve the inequality (1 - 2 x )(2 - 2 x ) = 2 - 2 x - 4 x + 4 x 2 = 2 - 6 x + 4 x 2 3 4 ⇐⇒ 4 x 2 - 6 x + 2 - 3 4 = 4 x 2 - 6 x + 5 4 0 solving the left-hand sided equation we get as solutions

Unformatted text preview: 10 8 = 5 4 and 2 8 = 1 4 ; the solution for the inequality is then x ≤ 1 4 or x ≥ 5 4 but since we cannot cut more than a 1 2 wide strip, the second part is unus-able. Result: x ≤ 1 4 = 0 . 25 (of course, x is also positive . ..) ± Date : 01/21/2000. 1...
