Hello All

I have this word problem that I am having problems with

Here it is

A circular piece of sheet metal has a diameter of 20 in. The edges are to be cut off to form a rectangle of area in^2. What are dimensions of the rectangle??

Here is what I have figured out. Not sure if it of any use

Formula of Circle is

10^2 = y ^ 2 + x ^ 2

Area of rectangle

160 = LW

Not sure how to go from here. Please help

Thanks
