    Need to solve What is the area of P ∞

    Let P0 be an equilateral triangle of area 10. Each side of P0 is trisected, and the corners are snipped off, creating a new polygon (in fact, a hexagon) P1. What is the area of P1? Now repeat the process to P1 i.e. trisect each side and snip off the corners to obtain a new polygon P2. What is the area of P2? Now repeat this process infinitely often to create an object P. What is the area of P?
