hey...can you please help me with this question!...

A rod with isosceles-triangular cross section is machines from a
cylindrical steel rod of diameter 2cm. the strength of the rod is
directly proportional to the product of the base of the triangle and
the square of the height of the triangle. What are the dimensions of
such a rod that has maximum strength?

thank you for any help
