Problem: What is the area of the largest rectangle that can be inscribed in the ellipse 9x(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); ^{2}+4y^{2}=36

Relevant Equations:

equation of an ellipse: (x - h)^{2}/a^{2}+ (y - k)^{2}/b^{2}= 1

I only got as far as

x^{2}/4 + y^{2}/9 = 1

(x - 0)^{2}/2^{2}+ (y - 0)^{2}/3^{2}= 1

I have no idea where to go from here
