1. A farmer wants to fence in a rectangular area along a river and divide it into 3 equal-sized pens with
fencing perpendicular to the water. He is not going to build a fence along the river. If he has 120 ft
of fencing available to use, find the maximum area of the field.
2. Find the closest point on the line y = −3x + 4 to the point (1, 5).
