1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
A regular hexagon with center at the origin in the complex plane has opposite pairs of sides one unit apart. One pair of sides is parallel to the imaginary axis. Let R be the region outside the hexagon, and let S = $\{ 1/z |x \in R}$. Then the area of S has the form a $\pi +\sqrt b$, where a and b are positive integers. Find a+b.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
This should only require high school math although there is probably a solution using the fact that 1/z is a Mobius transformation or something else in complex analysis.

The hexagon is contained in the closed of radius 1/sqrt(3) center at the origin, which means that S is contained inside of the closed disk of radius \sqrt3 centered at the origin. So basically we need to figure out what to subtract off of 3 \pi. Anyone know how to do that?
