Unformatted text preview: available. 1. A max = 721 sq. ft. 2. A max = 729 sq. ft. correct 3. A max = 727 sq. ft. 4. A max = 723 sq. ft. 5. A max = 725 sq. ft. Explanation: Let x, y be the respective parts of the fence shown in the gure 20 ft x y Barn Then 2 x + 20 + 2 y = 88 , so adjacent sides of the fenced area will have length x + 20 , 34-x. Hence, as a function of x , the area enclosed by the fence will be given by A ( x ) = (34-x )( x + 20) . Dierentiating A ( x ) with respect to x we see that A ( x ) =-2 x + 14 ....
