  1. well, I do not know which is x and which is y so I will call them w and L

    50 = 2 w + L
    so L = 50 - 2 w
    or
    w = (50-L)/2

    A = w L = [(50-L)/2]L = 25 L - L^2/2
    or
    A = (50 - 2w)w = 50 w - 2 w^2

    since I do not know which is x, I can not help with c

  3. ok so w = x = 10
    A = 50 w -2 w^2 = 50 x - 2 x^2
    = 50(10) - 2(100)
    = 500 - 200
    = 300 m^2
