    In triangle ABC
    let side BC be of length a
    let side AC be of length b
    let side AB be of length c
    let P be a randomly chosen point inside ABC with uniform distribution

    What is the probability in terms of a,b,c that P will be:

    1) perpendicularly closer to side AB than it is to either of the other two sides?
    2) perpendicularly further from AB than the combined distances to the other two sides?
