    The dimensions that give the largest possible area are 186 by 187, with an area of 34,782ft².

    To maximize area and minimize perimeter, you make the figure as close to equilateral as possible. 560/3 = 186 2/3. We would rather use whole number dimensions, so we would have 186 for one side. 560-186 = 374. 374/2 = 187 for the other dimension.
