please can someone help me do this problem. atleast help me find an equation to start with thank you.

each page in a children's picture book has area 58 squared inches and a left side margin of 1.5 inches and top,bottom and right side margins of 0.5 inches. Find the dimensions of the picture on each page so that the picture will have the largest possible area?

The largest possible area for a picture on each page would be 55 squared inches because if you add up all the margins and subtract that from 58 you get 55 square inches. G00D LUCK!

but i think there should be a specific equation that you should use inorder to put it in your calculator to graph it and then find the max
