Can you please help me with this question? I'm not sure I get the picture here.

A farmer has 200 feet of fencing to surround a small plot of land. He wants to maximize the amount of space possible using a rectangular formation. The enclosed area will be against the side of a barn so he only needs one of the lengths of the rectangular area to be enclosed by fencing. What is the maximum area that can be enclosed by the fence?
