On the side of his house, a man is going to build two enclosures. One enclosure for a garden and another enclosure to keep his dogs in so the dogs aren’t roaming around. It is illegal to have any dogs roaming around. He bought 180ft of fence to use and one side is already existing. Refer to the picture on the next page.

Since there are three short sides and one long side, to set up the perimeter, the short sides will be x and the long side will be y. So the equation is 3x + y = 180. The 180 comes from the 180 ft of fence the man already has. To find the total area, we need to solve the equation for y. So we subtract 3x from one side to the other. So the equation will be y = 180 – 3x

The area formula is A = xy. So you substitute the final equation you got above with the y in the area formula to end up with A = x(180-3x). Then, you multiply everything in the parenthesis by x. You get 180x – 3x^2.

To find the domain, you divide the total amount of material by the number of x’s. 180 is the total amount of material and there are 3 x’s. So divide 180 by 3. The answer is 60. So the domain is (0, 60). To find the dimensions that yield maximum area, on the calculator press the y= button and type in the final area equation we got, which is 180x – 3x^2. Then before you graph, you press the window button and enter the domain in the Xmin and Xmax slots. So it would look like Xmin = 0 and Xmax = 60. You just leave the other ones alone. Then you press zoom and 0 and it shows the graph. Refer to graph on other page. Then you press the trace button and you get the dimensions x= 30 and y= 2700. Those are your dimensions for maximum area.

To find the maximum area, all you have to do is look at your dimensions. The calculator gives you x= 30 and y= 2700. The maximum area is the y you are given, which is 2700. So your maximum area is 2,700 sq. yds. x= 30 yds and y= 90yds.

"If you don't want to take school seriously, then I guess I’ll look forward to seeing you working your shift at McDonald’s when I stop by for the fries”. This is what my mom told me when I was an eighth grader. My parents are very accomplished people; my mother is a registered nurse and my father is a lawyer. So her words cut deep and hit me where it hurt. Why was she telling me this? Because I deserved every bit of it. I was at a point in my life when I was...

Now that I am in high school I take into my mothers words and realize that college is important. But now the question is, “What college do I want to attend?” I have taken into consideration many other colleges. I believe that the University of Oklahoma is the best...

I have been playing my entire life because it was such a huge part of my life growing up with my father being a coach and my brother who was an exceptional player when he participated in grade school, high school, and college. I currently play for my dad who is the head coach and my brother who is an assistant coach at Holy Cross High School. They have taught me so much about the game and how it is much more than a game. They showed and continue to...

...the bottom quarter of family income went to one of the 238 most selective colleges, compared with 78 percent of students from the top quarter (Markell). Certainly, these numbers show that students that come from low income families aren’t getting the opportunities that they deserve. With college costs going nowhere but up, students from low-income families face tough decisions. Some students choose to attend community college while some make the...

...extravagant living and a need for a large income. It probably contributed to Fitzgerald's alcoholism and the mental breakdown of his wife, Zelda. The success also probably led to his physical and spiritual collapse, which he described frankly in the long essay The Crack-Up (1936). Fitzgerald spent his last years as a scriptwriter in Hollywood and died there on Dec. 21, 1940. A few years after his death, his books won him the recognition he had desired while alive.
