# How do you find the area of a hexagon with 6 inches sides?

very easy calculate the length of each side then add them that is the area

edit-

Im not sure how, but that is not correct at all^ haha.

### Can you show that you can work out the area of a regular hexagon with a perimeter of LX inches rounding your answer to a suitable degree of accuracy?

Perimeter in inches = LX = 60. A regular hexagon with a perimeter of 60 inches has 6 equal sides of 10 inches. A regular hexagon has 6 equal interior equilateral triangles So in order to find the area of the hexagon we must first find the area of one of its interior triangles and then multiply the result by 6. Area of a triangle = base times perpendicular height divided by 2. An equilateral…

### Hexagonal prism volume?

the formula to find the area of any prism is to find the area of the base (a regular hexagon, meaning that all sides and angles are the same) and multiply by the height of the prism. To find the area of a hexagon you multiply the apothem by the perimeter of the hexagon, and then divide that by 2. the apothem is a line from the center point to the center of any side…

### How do you find the area of a storage box with the sides 6.3 inches 12.6 inches and 4.2 inches and turn it into square inches?

Do you mean the surface area of the box? If so... What you do is break the surface area into 6 rectangles: Two rectangles have sides of length 6.3 and 12.6 inches. Two rectangles have sides of length 6.3 and 4.2 inches. Two rectangles have sides of length 12.6 and 4.2 inches. Find the area of each of the six rectangles (using the standard formula for the area of a rectangle, A = W x…

### What is the formula for calculating the volume of a hexagonal shape?

First we assume it is a regular hexagon meaning all the angles are the same and the sides are the same length. Recalling that a regular hexagon can be broken up into 6 triangles, we find the area of the hexagon by finding the area of one triangle and multiply by six. (recall the area of triangle is Height x 1/2 Base ) You can also find the area of a hexagon using the formula…

### How do you find area of a hexagon side 9 feet?

Assuming this is a regular hexagon, with all sides and all angles the same. The area of a regular hexagon of side length is given by A = 3 * (square root of 3) / 2 * t squared, where t = side. This is approximately equal to 2.598076211 * t2 With t = 9 feet, the Area = 2.598076211 * 9 * 9 = 210.444173 square feet

### How do you divide a hexagon into twelve equal parts?

Assuming the hexagon is equilateral (all six sides are the same length) 1) Draw a straight line from each angle in the hexagon (where the sides meet each other) to the angle on the opposite side of the hexagon. You have divided the hexagon into 6 parts now. 2) Find the center point of each line forming the sides of the hexagon. Draw a line from each center point to the opposite side's center point…

### What is the formula to find volume of a hexagon?

A hexagon is a planar figure and so has no volume. A six sided regular polyhedron is a cube, the volume is the side raised to the third power. S3. The area of a regular hexagon can be computed by realizing that the regular hexagon can be broken up into six identical equilateral triangles. The area of each triangle is half the product of the base times the height The length of the side of…

### How do you find the sum of the angles of a hexagon without the hexagon?

The sum of the interior angles of any shape that has straight sides is (180 degrees) times (the number of sides - 2) . For the case of a hexagon, (the number of sides - 2) = 4 . The sum of the interior angles = (180) x (4) = 720 degrees. The sum of the exteior angles is always 360 degrees, no matter how many sides the shape has.

### Find the area of a hexagon with side a length of 14in Show all work for credit?

Obviously homework, so I'll give you some pointers: Assuming it is a regular hexagon then: Draw in all three diagonals of the hexagon - this will split the hexagon into 6 equilateral triangles. Sum the areas of the triangles to give the area of the hexagon. Use Pythagoras or trigonometric ratios to find the altitude of the triangles; the base of the triangles is the length of the side of the hexagon.
