The following is an argument that two polygons can have area of 4. We will work with circles and at the end replace them by many-sided polygons.
Let C1 and C2 be circles centered at the origin both of radius r and C3, a circle also at the origin of radius s for s<=r. Pick A in C3, B in C1 and C in C2 so the triangle has largest area with these conditions imposed. By symmetry we can pick A to have coordinates (0,-s), B to have coordinates (r cos x, r sin x) and C to have coordinates (- r cos x, r sin x) for some angle x between 0 and pi/2.
Let q = s/r.Then straightforward calculations show that the area of triangle ABC is r^2 (q + sin x) cos x. In order to have maximum area its derivative with respect to x is 0. This gives the equation:
cos^2 x = q sin x + cos x sin x.
We want the area of triangle ABC to be 1, so
1 = r^2 (q + sin x) cos x.
We now ask if there is a solution to these two equations where pi r^2 = 4.
Eliminating r and q from these now three equations, we get the equation:
pi/4 = (cos^2 x / sin x – cos x + sin x ) cos x.
The expression on the right is infinity at x=0 and 0 at 0 at x = pi/2, so by continuity it does have a solution.
Excel tells me that when x is > .45 radians roughly then q is less than 1 and when x is > .5 radians roughly the expression on the right above is approximately pi/4. So there is a solution for x approximately .5 radians.
Now replace the circles by polygons with many sides approximating them to get the final conclusion.
I suspect there is no solution for all three polygons but don’t know how to proceed.
