You have an equilateral triangle you want to wrap with a square piece of paper. If the triangle has unit sides, what is the smallest square piece of paper that can be folded around the triangle such that both the front and back sides of the triangle are completely covered by the paper?
a square peice that is exactly 2x the area. like a peice of paper that is just two of those triangles. ex. if the triangle's sides are all equal(lets say 10cm on each side) then the peice of paper would have to be 10cm x 10cm.
