Maybe not that tricky for you all.

A dude wants to fencing a rectangular area. One of the side is 50 fleet, which he already fenced. He has 80 ft left in fencing. What is the other side must he built to maxime area.

Anyone got any question on how to solve this one?

If the fenced area has to be rectangular then the only option he has is to make the other side (80-50)/2 = 15 ft.

But this solution definitely does not make the problem tricky. So what am I missing ??
