On 2012-04-05 at 13:38 in the "Help me" section the following was proposed

"Given an arbitrary triangle find the equilateral triangle circumscribed around the original one such that the area of that equilateral triangle is maximized"

I am proposing the dual problem, by replacing "circumscribed around" by "inscribed inside" and " maximized" by "minimized"
