300x300 square

    Six points have to be the maximum distance from each other within or on the sides of the square, what is the distance?

    This is my first foray into the brain teasers on this forum, and after a little thought I came to the distance of
    173.205
    Any luck?

    I've found a little different value:
    600-300*sqrt[2] ~ 175.736
