Ah, I misread/misunderstood the question, I assumed it was talking about a singular straight section as in only one of the numerous ones and so I thought an image was needed.
11. I tried all dividing methods and got 14/3 as my simplest answer but it’s wrong. I even changed it to 4 and 2/3 but it is still wrong 😐
