Unformatted text preview: the area of a rectangle. The new equation created is area of a perimeter equal to the width subtracted by the width squared. To maximize the area we find the derivative of the equation which is dA/dw equal to one subtracted by two multiplied by the width. We make this equation equal to zero and solve for w. We get width equal to a half. This means that a half squared is equal to the maximum area, which is equal to onefourth....
