Graph Optimization example problem

Suppose that

For each x in the interval (0,1), consider the rectangle formed in the following manner:

a) Its right side is the line segment connecting the points (x, f(x)) and (x, g(x))

b) Its left side lies along the y-axis

Which value of x in the interval (0,1) results in the rectangle of largest area?
