Homework Help: Calculus

Posted by Jeff on Saturday, March 20, 2010 at 8:08pm.

An isosceles triangle has a vertex at the origin. Determine the area of the largest such triangle that is bound by the function x^2 + 6y = 48.

So, y=8 when x=0 making a vertical side equal to 8. I also determined that there is a zero at =/- the square root of 48, or approximately 6.93. I know that the base of a triangle=bh/2. I also know that two of the sides must be equal. But, I'm not sure where to go from here. Please help !!
