Rectangular prisms!

Algebra Level 3

Given a rectangular prism (as shown below) whose edge lengths have a sum of 36, what is the minimum value for the length of the line connecting two vertices which do not share a face?

If the minimum value can be expressed as \(a\sqrt{b}\), where \(a\) and \(b\) are integers with \(b\) square-free, submit your answer as \(a+b\).
