Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am a newmember and a newbie to this forum.

I am interested in Maths especially Geometry. I am trying to deal with a geometry problem of polygon and i need help.

My question is -

I have a polygon with n number of sides. I want to find out the area of the largest possible triangle from this polygon in two cases.

Case: 1 All of the vertices of the largest triangle found lie in the interior of the polygon, that is none of the points of the triangle are on the polygon.

Case: 2 All or any of the vertices of the triangle lie on the polygon

Any ideas, links , formulas, algorithms that can be helpful is highly appreciated

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Damrai
