Here we go, It is straightforward, like this: Since from your drawing we get that if x = -4, y = 0, hence the answer must be either (1) equation or (3) equation, but as we see the first one is not parabola at all, just straight line, hence it is (3) equation the correct answer. More importantly, acc...

Here we go, Since the question stem asks for the largest side that our imaginary square could have, the diagonal of the square at issue must be the diameter of the circle set forth in the problem. Hence, according to the Pythagorean proposition we got a^2+a^2 = d^2, here a - is side of our square an...
