maximizing the area of a rectangle inscribed in a parabola
A rectangle is inscribed with its base on the x-axis and its upper corners on the parabola y=9-[(x^2)/4] . What are the dimensions of such a rectangle with the greatest possible area?
I found the height to be 6, but I cannot figure out the width.
