I used some simple analitical geometry and get the side of the square is \(\frac{8}{3}\) and thus the area is \(\left(\frac{8}{3}\right)^2=\frac{64}{9} \)

yes

how did you do it

Just put the triangle in the Cartesian diagram with the coordinates are (0,0),(4,0) and(0,8)

@Poetri Sonya But how to maximize

Rajdeep Dhingra - 3 years, 3 months ago

Log in to reply

@Rajdeep Dhingra The largest square in the triangle is when the square's coordinates are \((0,0),(0,x),(x,0)\)and\((x,x)\) with \((x,x)\) lies in the hypotenuse .

@Poetri Sonya Please could you give the full solution

Rajdeep Dhingra - 3 years, 3 months ago

Log in to reply

@Rajdeep Dhingra Since \((x,x)\) lies in the hypotenuse, it lies in the line \(y=-2x+8\). Then \[x=-2x+8\] \[3x=8\] \[x=\frac{8}{3}\] So the side is \(\dfrac{8}{3}\)

It is really difficult to answer such questions. Such things are based on school to school , child to child so you really have to decide it yourself.

@Rajdeep Dhingra i actually want to pursue physics as my interest as future career especially to do some sort of research and truly speaking i also want to master mathematics to migrate to higher physics as well as without latter it would be almost impossible to do so .and i know that whatever is in imo is for mathematics and in modern physics or even in classical one demads a nice hold over calculus which is not at all in imo

This the procedure to do this kind of a sum:

Let the side of the required square be \(a\).

Length of the remaining parts of the two legs are respectively \(8-a\) and \(4-a\).

So the total area which is \(\frac{1}{2}.a.(8-a)+a^{2}+\frac{1}{2}.a.(4-a)\) will be equal to \(16\) (the area of the whole triangle)

Solving the equation you get \(x=\frac{8}{3}\)

and hence the area is \(\frac{64}{9}\)
