## 'Squ-areas' printed from http://nrich.maths.org/

The diagram shows three squares on the sides of a triangle
$ABC$.

Their areas are respectively 18 000, 20 000 and 26 000 square
centimetres.

If the squares are joined, three more triangular areas are
enclosed. What is the area of this convex hexagon?
