--question: i don't understand how the triangles have coinciding hypotenuses but still overlap slightly---
36. A circle is inscribed in an equilateral triangle, a square is inscribed in the circle. The ratio of the areas of the triangle to the square is...?
38. If the sum of all the angles except one of a convex polygon is 2190 degrees, then the number of sides of the polygon must be...?
