Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think you are actually supposed to add them all up ... becaues that would be a big number multiplying woudl give you more than the sides but you are addind just those shapes.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Actually this was a good exercise. It required knowing the number of sides of various shapes, and the ability to follow instructions.
