The question is:

A circle touches the y-axis at the origin and goes through the point A(8, 0). The point C is

on the circumference. Find the greatest possible area of ∆OAC

I graphed the above situation, and used the equation A=(1/2)bcsinA, but i couldn't muster up an answer.

Your help would be much appreciated. Thank you!
