the maximum area that can be fenced is 22500.

this is arrived at as follows...first, if the rectangle is divided into four equal squares pen,this means that the lengths and width are equal.assuming that tyhe lenght is represented by x,and the perimeter is equal to 600 feet,then the perimeter is equal to 4a ie

4a=600 feet

a=600/4

a=150 feet

area=length*width

area=150^2

=22500 feet sq
