now use your expression y = 3e^(-8x^2+2)
in A = 2xy and you're good to go
I am told to maximize the area of a rectangular area within the graph
And the area equation I came up with is
I understand optimization problems just fine and I know the above equations are correct, I'm just having a lot of trouble simplifying my answer. If anyone cares to take a look at it, that'd be swell.
