Consider any right triangle. Construct a square off of each side and then connect the corners
of the squares to form a convex hexagon as in the figure below. What is the area of the hexagon in terms of a and b?

 

how would you solve this using algebra

I understand that we have to split the hexagon into different parts, and I know how to find the area of the right triangles and the squares, but how do we find the area of the non-right triangles, and what would the final answer be?

Maybe this user didn't see the other question and needed some help. You didn't need to call them an unkind word, even if it was censored.
