I recently had a calculus midterm, but was baffled at how to even start this question. Can anyone point me in the direction to start it? It deals with the maximum/minimum section using differentiation.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What is the maximum area of a rectangle inscribed within a triangle with sides 12, 16 and 20?
