Question

Ben wants to build a rectangular enclosure for his animals. One
side of the pen will be against the barn, so he needs no fence on
that side. The other three sides will be enclosed with wire
fencing. If Ben has 450 feet of fencing, you can find the
dimensions that maximize the area of the enclosure.

A(W)=A(W)=

b) What width WW would maximize the area?

WW = ft

Round to nearest half foot

c) What is the maximum area?

AA = square feet

Round to nearest half foot

Answer #1

Jesse wants to build a rectangular pen for his animals. One side
of the pen will be against the barn; the other three sides will be
enclosed with wire fencing. If Jesse has 700 feet of fencing, what
dimensions would maximize the area of the pen?
a) Let w be the length of the pen perpendicular to the barn. Write
an equation to model the area of the pen in terms of w
Area =
b) What width w would...

We wish to build a rectangular pen. Three of the sides will be
made from standard fencing costing $7 per foot; the fourth side
will be made using a decorative fence costing $19 per foot. If the
total enclosed area must be 1200 sq. ft., what are the dimensions
of the pen with the lowest total cost? What is that total cost?

A farmer needs to build a rectangular pen with one side bordered
by a river (that side does not need a fence). He wants the pen to
have an area of 200 sq. ft. What should the dimensions of the pen
be to use the smallest amount of fencing around the three fenced
sides? Support your answer using derivatives

A rectangular enclosure will hold 3 different types of animals.
Interior fences, parallel to one of the sides, will subdivide the
enclosure into 3 spaces. There are 1104 yards of fence to make the
whole thing. Find the dimensions of the outer rectangle to maximize
the total enclosed area.

1. A rectangular pen is built with one side against a barn. If
600 m of fencing are used for the other three sides of the pen,
complete the following to find the dimensions that maximize the
area of the pen.
True or False: the objective function is the perimeter function,
P=2x+y
2. Let A be the area of the rectangular pen and let x be the
length of the sides perpendicular to the barn. Write the objective
function in...

You want to form a rectangular pen of area, a = 60
ft2 (see the figure below). One side of the pen is to be
formed by an existing building and the other three sides by a
fence. If w is the width of the sides of the rectangle
perpendicular to the building, then the length of the side parallel
to the building is L = 60/w. The total amount of
fence required is the function F = 2w +...

A fence is to be built to enclose a rectangular area of 280
square feet. The fence along three sides is to be made of material
that costs 5 dollars per foot, and the material for the fourth side
costs 14 dollars per foot. Find the length LL and width WW (with
W≤LW≤L) of the enclosure that is most economical to construct.

A farmer wants to fence in a rectangular plot of land adjacent
to the north wall of his barn. No fencing is needed along the barn,
and the fencing along the west side of the plot is shared with a
neighbor who will split the cost of that portion of the fence. If
the fencing costs $16 per linear foot to install and the farmer is
not willing to spend more than $8000, find the dimensions for the
plot that...

You need to build a rectangular enclosure divided into 3 equal
rectangular sections, occupying a total area of 200 square feet.
The exterior fencing needs to be reinforced, and so costs $10 per
linear foot, while the interior fencing only costs $2.50 per linear
foot. Find the dimensions of the enclosure which five the minimum
cost. be sure to justify that your solution is correct.

A farmer wants to fence in a rectangular plot of land adjacent
to his barn. No fence is needed along the barn. If the fencing cost
$20 per foot and he wants to enclose 800 square feet, then what
dimensions will minimize cost?
