So the question asks: A square is quartered into four equal sized triangles, as shown in the diagram. If each triangle has an area equal to 18, what is the perimeter of the square.

The correct answer is 24√2. I got it right but now reviewing it, it seems as though the perimeter would be 48. Can anyone give me an explanation as to why it would be 24√2? It's question 27 on QR exam #9. Thanks!
