I have a kite pictured below...i need to determine x y z so that the kite has a maximum area. a and b are fixed constants.

The way I am thinking of trying this is to have this equation

(x*y)+(z*x)=A

from this i have three variables so i should solve for y in terms of x and solve for z in terms of x this will give me one equation one unknown so i can differentiate and set it equal to zero. therefore solving.

Would this be a correct approach for this problem...(sorry about the poor drawing, its difficult on a touchpad)
