Given a 2019-sided red regular polygonal shape with side length 1, if each side also forms the side of a blue square shape located outside the red shape, what is the perimeter of the resulting redand-blue shape?

There will be 2019 blue squares with 1 inch sides.....3 of which are outside of the red

2019 * 3 = 6057 units

See example below with six sided hexagon 6 squares with 3 sides each contributing to the perimeter total :

Hey there, Guest!

So let's say that the perimeter is named "P" of the resulting red and blue shape is p = NL where N (= number of sides) = 2019 and L (= length) of side = 1 unit.

So, P = NL = 2019 × 1 = 2019 units

Hope this helped! :)
