I'm teaching my 11th graders quadratic functions right now, they are not amused. Question: you have 100 meters of fence to fence in a rectangular area, but one of the sides doesn't need a fence because there's a wall already. So the question is, how long and wide do you choose your corral to maximize the area.

You're not allowed to slip me that question Then again, I only got 50% in my own example. "It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it" ~ Aristotle

If I don't win, the game is rigged. In case it's not obvious, I love maths Oh yeah. Always have. I asked for homework at my first school. Feel free to send me a private message.

I like questions like that though, because they show a simple application of maths to a real situation where guesswork would only get you so far.
For those that are interested, this is how you get the answer: Feel free to send me a private message.
