Hey guys, so the answer for this question is 60 and 120 but i was wondering why it cant be 30 as length and width should be considered. please guide, thanks!

Can you please share the screenshot?

hi, im unable to upload a picture. hope this helps

Can you show your calculations?

The problem asks for the possible lengths of the unfenced side. If you consider it as 30, the remaining 3 sides should be **30, 120 and 120** to satisfy the given area of 3600.

Since the sum of these 3 sides (**270**) exceeds the length of the fence (**180**) we exclude this option.

Thank youu
