(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Given the function

y = 12- 3x^2,

find the maximum semi-circular area bounded by the curve and the x-axis.

2. Relevant equations

A= Pi(r^2)

3. The attempt at a solution

I found my zeros, 2 and -2, and my maximum height of 12 from the y'.

A' = 2Pi(r)
