Jasper had a regular (sides and angles all the same) hexagon with 10-centimetre sides, and 3 regular triangles with 10-centimetre sides. He put the side of a triangle against every second side of the hexagon. How many sides did this final shape have?

Jasper made an equilateral triangle with 3 sides, each 30-centimetres long!
