Rose wants to plant a garden. She made an outline in her yard of a regular octagon with each side 8 feet long. Rose also divided the garden into sections as shown. In each triangle and square, she planted flowers. In three of the rectangles, she planted vegetables.

a.What can be the maximum area of the garden occupied by flowers?

b.Find maximum area occupied by vegetables.

I think that the base and height of the triangle is 5.7 feet. How would I figure out the area of the rest? I’m confused?!?!
