a) Сonsider this figure: From the figure it can be seen that:
Area $\left(A\right)=4xy$
And also,

We've taken the positive value since we chose this point to be in the first quadrant
So now deciding:
$A=4xy$

Differentiating the above function with respect to "y":

For maximize the area:
Put,
$\frac{dA}{dy}=0$

${y}^{2}=\frac{1}{8}$
$y=\frac{1}{\sqrt{8}}$
Corresponding to this,

$x=\sqrt{\frac{3}{4}}$
$x=\frac{\sqrt{3}}{2}$
Hence the maximum area:
Area $\left(A\right)=4xy$

$Are{a}_{max}=\sqrt{\frac{3}{2}}$
b)Prove the following: Let c in (a, b). If f is continuous on [a, b], differentiable on (a, b), and:
