There is a decagon with eight 150 degree angles and two 120 degree angles. The lengths of its sides are a set of ten consecutive integers. Maximize the length of its longest side.

Not only is is impossible to have both left and right to have exactly one sqrt(3)/2 vertical drop multipliers each, but also they cannont have exactly one .5 multiplier each, as that would entail the horizontal direction having exactly one sqrt(3)/2 multiplier, resulting in an irrational difference between the top and bottom parallel faces.
