There is a point inside a regular hexagon. It forms six triangles with the vertices.
The area of the green triangle is of the form a/b, where a and b are co-prime. The numbers inside the triangles represent the areas. Find a + b..

Using the information/ideas in the link:
The total area of the 3 red triangles is half the hexagon’s area (A).
A = 2*(3+5+8) = 32
A pair of opposite triangles has area A/3. Call the green triangle’s area G:
G + 8 = 32/3
G = 8/3
So a=8, b=3 and a+b =11
