1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data An isosceles triangle has base 6 and height 12. Find the maximum possible area of a rectangle that can be placed inside the triangle with one side on the base of the triangle. 2. Relevant equations None. 3. The attempt at a solution Well, so far I've created an X-Y Axis and made the triangle symmetric to the Y-Axis. I am, however, really bad at these and need help from here. Where should I go from here?
