x^2 + y ^2 = 4

area = 4 |x y| (so it works in each quadrant)

y = sqrt(4-x^2)

area = 4 x sqrt(4-x^2)

b)

the area can be 0 (at x = 0 and x = 2)and it has a maximum at x = y = sqrt 2

to show that take derivative and set to zero

0 = -4 x^2/sqrt(4-x^2) +4 sqrt(4-x^2)

0 = -4x^2 + 16 - 4 x^2

8 x^2 = 16

x = sqrt 2

so domain of area is 0 to x = sqrt 2 where the area is 8

c)

L = 2 x + 2 y

= 2 x + 2 sqrt(4-x^2)

= 2 ( x + sqrt (4-x^2))

d)

Q goes from x = 0 to x = 2 in Quadrant 1
