    i guess you could solve it in general terms 2(x+y) = P A = x*y maximize A

    ok start with what i gave you use perimeter equation to get y in terms of x and P substitute that in for y in Area equation differentiate and solve for x

    kushashwa this can be done without calculus as well when you have an quadratic equation you find max point by finding line of symmetry x=-b/2a just in case you were curious
