Hello student,

Let x denote the breadth of the rectangular piece and y denote the length of the rectangular piece of land.now according to the question

since the total fencing available is 3000 m ,therefore

2x + y = 3000or y = 3000 – 2xand the area (A) = xy

therefore A = x (3000 – 2x)

now if we have to enclose certain area then it has to be greater than zero.

Now , x >0 , y > 0 i.e. 3000 – 2x > 0

Which means that 3000 > 2xOr 2x < 3000Or x < 1500

But length should be greater than the breadth i.e. y>x

Which means that 3000 – 2x > x

Or 3000 > 3x ; x < 1000

Now if we see the three bold solution i.e. x < 1000 , x < 1500 and x >0 then on number line we can plot the result as

hence the value of x lies between 0 and 1000or 0 < x < 1000

Thanks and Regards
