Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1triangle TRQ is a 306090 triangle, so you'll find that TQ = 16 \(\large TR = 16\sqrt{3}\) dw:1433380082720:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now construct a perpendicular segment to PQ that goes through point S dw:1433380133685:dw mark the new point point U as shown above

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1angle UST = 90 degrees since I made SU perpendicular to PQ dw:1433380192075:dw so that means angle PSU must be 45 degrees (45+90 = 135)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1TQ = SU since SUQT is a rectangle so SU = 16 SU = PU due to the fact that PSU is a 454590 triangle PU = 16 as well

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1UQ = 8 and ST = 8 because UQ = ST dw:1433380435649:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So all of that allows us to conclude that \[\Large SR = 8+16\sqrt{3} \approx 35.71281\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yep \[\Large 256+128\sqrt{3}\] is the answer they want

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and \[\Large 256+128\sqrt{3} \approx 477.7025034\] is the approximate area
