My drawing shows this equation. (A = XY--remember this! )

5X + 2Y = 900

solve for Y

Y = ( 900 - 2X)/2

substitute back in; remember X*Y

5X(900 - 2X)/2

4500X - 10X^2/2

2250X - 5X^2

d/dx( 2250X - 5X^2)

2250 - 10X

2250 = 10X

X = 225

as you see 900/4 is 225, so this is the optimal area for each pen

Assuming there are two additional width-sized fences to make the division, then 2L + 4W = 1200 ie L + 2W = 600. There are many possible dimensions: L 500, W 50; L 400, W 100 etc etc

Which style can be used to define a rectangular region through which the element's content can be viewed?

The style that can be used to define a rectangular region through which an element's content can be viewed is called "overflow." By setting the "overflow" property to "scroll," "auto," or "hidden," you can control how overflowing content is displayed within a specified region.

Ron will use all 900 meters of fence and wants to enclose a rectangular region that contain four congruent rectangular pens within it Calculus optimization i have further questions Please help?

Optimization is all about finding equations that involve your variables, and manipulating those equations to meet the stated constraints. The first step is to find two or more equations involving one or more of your variables. Here, we have cost and two separate lengths. Let's call the long side of each of the small congruent rectangles "l" and the short side "w." You know that you will have four of these rectangles, and because of the situation and the units you know that you will be measuring perimeter. Therefore, the sum of the perimeters of all four congruent rectangles is 4(2l+2w) or 8l+8w. I'm unclear from your question whether Ron will be using the 900 meters to form the four rectangles, or to form the rectangles and to surround them with fencing. Can you give me more information?
