### Building Tetrahedra

Can you make a tetrahedron whose faces all have the same perimeter?

A 1 metre cube has one face on the ground and one face against a wall. A 4 metre ladder leans against the wall and just touches the cube. How high is the top of the ladder above the ground?

The diagram shows a polygon ABCDEFG, in which $FG =6$ and $GA=AB=BC=CD=DE=EF$.

Also $BDFG$ is a square.

The area of the whole polygon is exactly twice the area of $BDFG$.

Find the length of the perimeter of the polygon.
