:D A regular hexagon has a square attached to each side. No square goes into the inside of the hexagon. And, there is no part of a line that is not touching the square. If the perimeter of the hexagon is 144 in., than what is the area of all squares put together?

Really? Man, you were super advanced for a little tike, especially for being in the U.S. In second grade, I was just learning my multiplication tables. I wouldn't have been able to solve this problem until fourth grade, and I was among the best math students in my class. B))

Well done, and welcome. It's a tough crowd in this forum, with some very advanced problem solvers who have a lot of math experience, but not all the members are like that, so if you keep improving in your skills and posting more difficult problems, you can be sure there will be plenty of people who enjoy solving them. :D

yeah, man, don't worry, it was a good puzzle
although, if you want my opinion, the only thing you did that I didn't like was post a spoiler before-hand
if there isn't a spoiler, I'm more tempted to answer it
