A person wants to make an enclosed play pen using 60 meters of fence. One of the sides is against the house (thus, not requiring any fencing). What are the dimensions of the play pen to get the maximum area?

A square 20 by 20 or 400 square feet.
There are three sides only 60/3 = 20 so a square can be formed with 3 sides of 20 and the fourth side being the against the side of the house.
