Problem 695

Post by rudarik »

Hi all,
Slightly confused with the wording of Problem 695. The word "within" suggests to me that the points should be allowed to lie inside the square, but in the example shown the points are all on the boundary. Which is the correct setup?

The Unit-Square is the black one.
For clarification the three points should be chosen that the rectangles combine to a clear non-square rectangle.
