I've got this problem that I'm trying to solve, I've been twisting my brain for several hours now. An area 'A' is limited by the curve y=x^2, the xaxel and the line x=2 In this area is a rectangle with the area R, as seen in the figure. Calculate the maximum relation between R and A in exact form. If someone could take a look at this and help me, I would appreciate it very very much! (sorry for my bad english)
