5 circles in a hexagon. (Posted on 2018-11-25) Difficulty: 5 of 5
Pack five unit circles in the smallest regular hexagon possible.

The exact solution for the smallest possible side length of the hexagon is given by the largest real root of a fourth degree polynomial:

P(x)=ax4+b√(3)x3+cx2+d√(3)x+e

Where a,b,c,d,e are integers. Find them.
