**Reiny**, Monday, November 12, 2012 at 6:24pmThe rectangle needs 2(15) + 2(12) or 54 inches

the square needs 4(19) or 6 inches.

So far we need 130 inches, leaving 90 for the 2 triangles.

For the two identical equilateral triangles we need 6 equal lengths or 90/6 or 15 inches for each side of the triangle
