Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it seems to me if we move the third point closer to the line AB, we can make a triangle with as small an area as we want.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we can make a triangle with area 12 (see above) and we can move the point c a little closer , so that the area is 11.9 (offhand, we don't know where, but we know it's possible) ditto for the other two choices.
