(probably a) trigonometric algorithm?
Posted: Sep 30, 2013 11:30 AM

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:

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,
