# Every pentagon

Geometry Level pending

On the perimeter of a square, fix a starting point. Mark out every fifth of the perimeter, and connect up these 5 points to form a pentagon. For example, if we started out with the top left corner, we will obtain:

Let $$x$$ be the ratio of the area of the pentagon to the square. If the difference of the maximum and minimum values of $$x$$ can be expressed in the form $$\large \frac {a}{b}$$, where $$a$$ and $$b$$ are coprime positive integers, determine the value of

$$3 \times (a + b)$$.

This is where the problem has been derived
