You need to pick a hot tub fast! Write down ANYTHING you can think of
that could help you find the area of the 6-, 7-, 8-, and 9-sided tubs. No

you just ran straight into a DEAD END. Triangles,
squares, and circles are one thing but helloooo—area
of a septagon? We don’t have formulas for the areas
of any of those other shapes. And if we have to
work them out one by one this could take forever. By
tomorrow? Not gonna happen.
It’s a fair point.

in, but we’re still a long way from choosing that ideal
Time to change our strategy!
