Cool kata, just 2 small suggestions for clarity:

1. State that you are looking for the largest/smallest absolute area i.e. unsigned area; so a triangle with a signed area of `-25` has an absolute area of `25`. Otherwise, mathematically speaking, the "smallest" area triangle will always be the negative value of the largest area triangle.

2. (Python 3.10) - It is stated that "Areas should be rounded to tenths." but when I returned `(25.0, 5.0)` I got error message expecting `int` values i.e. `(25,5)` - imho it would be better to be consistent in the return types?

? where are you seeing this?

java or python?

But it obviously doesn't?... Anyways, whatever

When the order of selected points matters, there are `5 * 4 * 3 = 60` ways to choose.

• MikChancreated a question for "Triangles made of random points" kata

Make your program efficient. With 5 points, you can make 60 triangles, but only 10 of them will be different.

This is a weird statement. According to combinatorics, there should be `C(5, 3) = 5! / (3! * 2!) = 5 * 4 / 2 = 10` triangles. I don't understand where the number 60 comes from.

In the Description: 'Descirption' should be 'Description'.

Oh, that's right! Thank you

I like this Kata! One small issue is that the function in the starting code is minmax_areas(). But the function tested is maxmin_areas()
