(Who measures fencing in

Solve this equation for w in terms of x. You now have a variable for the length and an expression, in terms of that variable, for the width. Use these to form the "area" formula, A(x).

I have been doing problems like this too. Can someone do this as an example?

Meanwhile, please be aware that this is not a classroom, but a tutoring forum. The tutors would like to help the original poster learn how to do this specific exercise. I'm afraid your desires may not rank above his needs.

Thank you for your consideration.

You are one of the nicest tutors on here. Can you show me how to do this problem. There is no rush I just need help. If I post on the board I get crap. Thanks.

A rancher has 20 miles of fencing to fence a rectangular piece of grazing land along a straight river. If no fence is required along the river and the sides perpendicular to the river are x miles long, find a formula for the area A(x) of the rectangle in terms of x. From practical considerations, what is the domain of the function A?
