Is there any more information? Like are any of these line segments medians? Maybe bisectors?

ABCDEFGH is a regular octagon with each side of length 2. Find AF and AE.

Is AF 3 and AE 4 (it's probably not, because the answer seems too simple)?
Thanks!
Sorry, that's all. My teacher has a tendency to provide us with vague problems... that's why I went here--I was wondering if I was missing something.
ThePerfectHacker: Just to clarify: that equation is for which problem? The octagon? If it is, what is x equal to AE or AF?

In the upper-left and lower-left, we have isosceles right triangles.
. . Their hypotenuse is , hence their sides are
Therefore: .
Draw .
In right triangle , we have: .
That is: .
Therefore: .
