A rancher wants to fence in an area of 2500000 square feet in a rectangular field and then divide it in half with a fence down the middle, parallel to one side.

What is the shortest length of fence that the rancher can use?

Step 1

Let length of the sides are x and y. And the middle fence is parallel to x side.

So total fence needed = 3x+2y

Step 2

Given area = 2500000 square feet

So, xy= 2500000

y=2500000 / x

Plug this in the total perimeter. Then find dP/dx

Step 3

For minimum perimeter dP/dx=0 , from there w...
