# How to find length of side of equilateral triangle when have radius of circle inscribed inside?

If I have a circle inscribed inside an equilateral triangle, and I know the radius of the circle, what is the formula to determine what the length of the side of the triangle is?

The Wikipedia page one equilateral triangles gives the radius of the inscribed circle as $r=a\frac{\sqrt{3}}{6}$ where $a$ is the side. So $a=r\frac{6}{\sqrt{3}}$.
or equivalently $a=2{\sqrt{3}}r$ –  Chris Card Jan 25 '11 at 17:43
It would be $\tan 30^{\circ} = \frac{r}{x}$ so that $x = \frac{r}{\tan 30^{\circ}}$ where $x$ is half of a side.
