What is the greatest possible area of a triangle that has one vertex at the center of a circle with radius 1 and the other 2 vertices on the circumference of the circle? Can anyone give me some insight into this?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was thinking maybe make the center angel 90 degree's? If so my circle would have an area of 1 I believe. Is this the maximum area?
