Answer:Step-by-step explanation:Given that the owner of a motel has 2900 m of fencing and wants to enclose a rectangular plot of land that borders a straight highway.

Fencing is used for 2times length and 1 width if highway side is taken as width

So we have 2l+w = 2900

Or w = 2900-2l

Area of the rectangular region = lw

Use derivative test to find the maximum

So maximum when I derivative =0

i.e when

Largest area = A(725)

=

1051250 sqm is area maximum
