**[SOLVED] Optimizing the Area of a Triangle**

I've been doing countless other ones, but this one has really stumped me.

"Triangle ABC has AB = AC. It is inscribed in a circle centre O, radius 10 cm. Find the value of the angle BAC that produces a maximum area for the triangle ABC."

I've drawn lots of diagrams to help me get started, but to no avail. I seriously have no clue how to do this one. Could someone please tell me a clue as to what my first step should be? I just need a starting point. Thanks in advance.
