The maximum area of a rectangle 2007-11-23
From Christy:
Question from Christy, a student:

Show that among all rectangles with an 8m perimeter, the one with the largest area is a square.

I know this is simple but I'm not sure if I'm doing it correctly. Here is what I did.

1. A = xy
2. 8 = 2x+2y
3. y = 4-x
4. A = x(4-x) = 4x-x^2


Not sure what to do from this point because I don't know if its right.
