Triangle in a square

In a square ABCD with side a = 6 cm, point E is the center of side AB and point F is the center of side BC. Calculate the size of all angles of the triangle DEF and the lengths of its sides.

Correct result:

d =  2.121 cm
e =  6.708 cm
f =  6.708 cm
E =  71.562 °
F =  71.562 °
D =  36.876 °
