    area of triangle LMN = \[1/2*(64\sqrt{3}/4)*\sqrt{3}/2 = 12\]

    Since they're all midpointsegments, they're all half the length of the opposing side. What would that do to your area?

    Original area is 1/2*A*B Area of small triangle is 1/2* 1/2A * 1/2B and that is 1/4 of the original area, get it?
