Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, that it now says that 6+sqrt(10) is correct, but the other one is still wrong

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the only clue I have is that the other answer is a smaller value

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you just do 12(6+sqrt(10)). which is 6sqrt(10)
