Given two sides of a triangle, find the minimum and maximum possible area of the triangle.
the length of the third side has to be of integer-valued.
The results in the test suite seem to be based on the idea that the minimum and maximum areas are found by setting the third side to a3 = abs(a1-a2)+1 and a3=a1+a2-1, which is not correct. The correct maximum is somewhere in the middle. For example, in problem 2, the correct results are mn = 24.9987 and mx = 1250.0000.
yes.. i see that now.. my assumption was wrong.
Sorry for the misconception.
yet again we learn from our mistakes
The maximum areas you report in the test cases are mostly wrong.
yes yes i see
thanks for pointing that out
