Halp! Ajudame!
There's 2 that are giving me problems, actually. I keep getting funky answers.
Find the area of the largest rectangle that can be inscribed in the ellipse x^2/a^2 + y^2/b^2 = 1. I keep getting 0 and I just redid it and got 1
A coneshaped drinking cup is made from a circular piece of paper of radius R by cutting out a sector adn joining the edges CA and CB. Find the max capacity of such a cup. ((The drawing looks like a sideways Pacman with the corner of his mouth C and the upper lip A and lower lip B XD))

Found the first one in last year's notes and copied from there

Now, just find y.
I'll do the second problem later.
YOU CAN'T RUIN MY HOLIDAYS FOR THAT!!

It's 2 AM here.
I'll do that tomorrow morning.
It's easier then the first one.. I think.. but I'm feeling sleepy now.

Thanks. I got x = Sqrt(a^2/2) <3 awesome. See, I started by getting the common denominator. I think they were just algebra mistakes. :\ 4th times the charm, eh?

Now, the second one.
This was one tricky problem. I was wondering since today morning that how the hell could anyone create a drinking cup from a sector.
I figured out it was the remaining circular part that was being used.
here R(as given in the question) = x
Now just put the values and differentiate the equation.

OMG, I got it wrong!!
Here's the correction..
The first equation shold be
2*(pi)*r = 2*(pi)*x  (theta)*x
Now, put the value of r in the below solution accordingly.
And since I'm watching Star Wars series again these days..
May the Force be with you..
