Points in a plane.
These are based on a similar problem on this forum
http://www.mathhelpforum.com/mathhe...principal.html
1. Let there be 'some' points in a plane such that distance between any two them is < 1. What is the minimum area/shape which can inscribe all these points?
2. You grab an area by putting infinite points on a plane. Only condition  any two points you put should be <1 apart. What is the maximum area you can grab?
Any pointers? I think I know the answer but am struggling to justify it.
Thanks
