    Jason plans to fence a rectangular area with 120 m of fencing. Allowing w to be width and l to be length of our rectangular area, we have, therefore,

    perimeter = 2w + 2l = 120, or

    l = 60 - w.

    Knowing that our area A is wl, or

    A = w(60-w),

    what selection of width w will maximize our area A?
