Expert Answer

Step 1

To calculate the largest possible area of the rectangle. If the rectangle is sitting on the x-axis and it two upper vertices is lies on the parabola y=12-x2. Now, first calculate the area function and then differentiate the function with respect to x and find the value of x and then substitute in value of y. After that substitute the value of x and y in the area function to calculate the area.
