dens. The gardener wants the enclosed area to be 286 square meters.

### Question Description

A gardener has 100 meters of fencing .The gardener wants the enclosed area to be 286 square meters.

4x+3y=100 Two rectangle areas =286

The fence will have width 3 times and length 4 times .

Each rectangle area= xy

2xy =286

xy =143

4x+3y =100

4xy = 572

(100-3y)y =572

3y2-100y+572=0

3y2 -78y-22y+572=0

3y(y-26)-22(y-26)=0

(y-26)(3y-22)=0

Y =26 or y =22/3

If y =26  then 4x = 100-78 =22  ;  x =5.5

If y =22/3  then  4x =100-22=78  ; x=19.5

Both the solutions are possible

If you want length larger then x =19.5 y =22/3

x= 19.5  m  y =22/3 m

or

x=5.5  m y=26 m University of Virginia Anonymous
