An enclosure for some remote control boats 
20171003 

From Roberto: I am trying to build a "ring" for our remote control boats, using irrigation pipe.
I'd like to use full 20' long sticks for the long sides and use eight of what we call
45s, which are actually 135' fittings to make the six short sides. If I know the length
of the two long sides, what would be the formula to find the exact lengths of the short sides?
Thank you. Answered by Penny Nom.
