Hi, there. I'm happy to help. :-)

The full solution to the problem is in the attached pdf.

If the details of the 30-60-90 triangle are not familiar to you, I recommend brushing up with this post:

Let me know if there are any further questions.

Mike :-)

The radius of circum circle of an equilateral triangle = a/sqrt(3). a is the side of triangle.
Here: a/sqrt(3) = 4
a = 4*sqrt(3).
perimeter 3a = 3*4*sqrt(3) = 12sqrt(3).
