Hi Tony,

I think you're talking about an equilateral triangle with side length 72, right?

First, I get a different area. Can you tell me more about how you came up with an area of 2701?

Second, I'm not sure what you mean by 'as close as possible'. What would be the problem with the circle actually touching the vertices of the triangle?
