the biggest triangle

What is the biggest triangle that can be draw in a sides's rectangle of x and y?
How can I denote it by x and y?
Is there an expression to its side by using x and y?

Re: the biggest triangle

What do you mean by biggest triangle? The largest area or perimeter? Do we know how x and y are related?
