it is possible to pass the same array for left

equals (leftoff

to avoid allocating extra storage for this common point.

Rectangle
that completely encloses the

might also fail to completely
enclose the Shape
if the Shape
overflows
the limited range of the integer data type. The
getBounds2D
method generally returns a
tighter bounding box due to its greater flexibility in
