    Answer:

    Is it possible to have a playground area made from 70 yards of fencing with an area of 324 square yards?

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Not if it’s rectangular.

    The max area is a square –> sides = 17.5 yards

    Area = 17.5^2 = 306.25 sq. yds.

    If it’s circular:

    C = 2pi*r = 70

    r = 35/pi yds.

    Area = pi*r^2 = pi*1225/pi^2 = 1225/pi sq yds

    Area =~ 389.93 sq. yds.

    What if it’s a hexagon?

    Or an octagon, etc.?
