A trapezoid is inscribed inside the circle (x^2 + y^2) = 25 where two of the vertices are at (-3,-4), and (3, -4), while the other two vertices are at (a, b) in quadrant 1 and (-a, b) in quadrant 2. Find the coordinate pair (a,b) that forms the trapezoid with the largest area. and then theres a hint the area of the trapezoid h(b1 + b2) / 2
