Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but it does not take too long 6 + 6/sqr(3) + 12/sqr(3) 6+ 6 sqr(3)/3 + 12 sqr(3)/3 6+ 2 sqr(3) + 4 sqr(3) 6+ 6 sqr(3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There isn't any faster way. You just have to do the math to find the length of the missing sides and add them all up.
