Since one side is on x-axis then other side will be || x-axis(rectangle) let say y=a then u will x=+sqrt(12-b).

Therefore u have length say = 2sqrt(12-b) &
breadth = b.

Hence Area, [tex]A = b\sqrt{12-b}[/tex].

u will get b=8 and Length=8& breadth 8.

Alternate
Rectangle with max area is a square
u get [tex] b=2\sqrt{12-b}[/tex]
