A mechanical engineering student wishes to inscribe a rectangle in a quarter circle of radius 2.00 cm. Determine the dimensions of the rectangle that will give it the greatest area.

length in cm =
height in cm =

My attempt on find the relationship between the rectangle and the quarter circle:

Let the base of the rectangle = b
let the height of the rectangle = h
Area of a a rectangle = b*h

Area of a circle =pie*R^2
Quarter of a circle = 1/4 pie R^2


am I on the right track......
is this the correct thought process....
