The fence is four units long and extends from the y axis horizontally some distance and then drops down to the curve. Find the lengths of the horizontal and vertical parts of the fence to maximize the area. [Let the height that the fence starts on teh y axis be designated as h. Now find the area in terms of h and other variables. Then get rid of h.
