(probably a) trigonometric algorithm?

Hello,
Say X = width of the object, we know it lies between 1150 and 1380. Say Y = height of the object, we know it lies between 2400 and 2735.
Now suppose the following table: http://www.dotinternet.be/temp/ods.pdf
How do we know if a given combination of X and Y is in the grey area ('not allowed') or in the area with white squares ('allowed') ?
Eg. when X=1250 and Y=2550 > area 'allowed' Eg. when X=1300 and Y=2700 > area 'not allowed'
Thanks,
 Bart
