Are you sure this is the exact question?

From the RHS I got an expression close to the LHS but not the same. So I tried to spreadsheet some values and did not get LHS = RHS.

eg. If alpha = 30, beta = 60 and gamma = 90 then

LHS = 2x0.5 + 2 x root(3)/2 + 2x1 = 3 + root(3)

RHS = 4 x 0.5 x root(3)/2 x 1 = root(3)

Well, this was a question asked by a student I am tutoring. He did say that he tried all angles to be 60° and the equation didn't match, so I told him that it means that it couldn't be proved.
