Homework Help: MaTH!!!

Posted by L.Bianchessi on Friday, March 9, 2012 at 7:41pm.

Let P(x,y) be a point on the curve y=16-x^2 and let A be the point directly below P on the x axis. If O is the origin, find the area and the perimeter of triangle OAP as functions of x.

I got Area=x(8-1/2x^2). Is that right?

And perimeter= x+16-x^2+ (square root 256-30x^2)

Did I do this question right?
