A Norman window has the shape of a semicircle atop a rectangle so that the diameter of the semicircle is equal to the width of the rectangle. What is the area of the largest possible Norman window with a perimeter of 33 feet?

I got h=10.180619625,r=2.458141125 and Area = 59.54227.

Can someone check my work, i'm not v ery confident in my answer.

I didn't get that, I would recheck.

always loved that particular question.

I got a radius of 4.62 and a max area of 76.24

Oh ok i see where i got it wrong. ty for your help.
