strange question but I tried just for fun :-D
I found 10*root3
I imagine a plan and I put multiple equilateral triangles.... I don't know if it's the best way.... :roll:
The area of 1 triangle is root3, so 10 triangles is 10root3 :wink:

sorry for the drawing because I did it quite fast with Paint and the triangles don't look so equilateral :-D :-D :-D
