## Related Questions False because a regular hexagon has 6 equal sides and not 8 sides  it has seven sides and must look like a regular hexagon . It has reflectional symmetry It has six lines of symmetry All the internal angles are the same  Any regular shaped polygon has equal angles and equal sides A regular polygon must have all its sides equal and all its angles equal. The only regular quadrilateral is a square. A regular polygon must have all sides (and angle) equal.An irregular polygon does not have to have all sides equal, but some may be equal.An irregular hexagon may have 2, 3, 4 or 5 equal sides. A regular heptagon is a polygon with seven equilateral sides. The shape must also be equiangular and convex. It is impossible to have a six sided shape with right angles since the lines would never meet, therefore it would not create a shape. The most right angles you can have in a shape is four. A six sided shape is called a hexagon. There are Regular Hexagons, meaning all the sides and all the angles are equal. Any other Hexagon with unequal sides and angles and called Irregular Hexagons. Each side must be straight, and the sum of the angles equaling 720&deg;. It has reflectional symmetry It has five lines of symmetry It is symmetrical Name of all polygons until 12 sides. Move the mouse over the shapes to discover their properties. Triangle Square Pentagon Hexagon Heptagon Octagon Nonagon Decagon Hendecagon Dodecagon These shapes are known as regular polygons. A polygon is a many sided shape with straight sides. To be a regular polygon all the sides and angles must be the same. The question does not state that it is a regular hexagon and so you may not assume that it is. Therefore, there is no simple formula because a hexagon can have very many shapes. One method would be to pick a point in the plane of the hexagon and join it to all the vertices. This divides up the hexagon into triangles. Their areas can be calculated using base and height, or three sides, or two sides and included angle - whichever you like. Finally the areas of the triangles must be combined to get the area of the hexagon. There is no such shape. A 2d shape with 5 sides and all equal angles must be a regular pentagon (or a 5-pointed star if you stretch the definition of "all angles"). And a regular pentagon - or star - has 5 lines of symmetry. A shape must have 4 sides in order to be a parallelogram (minus other defining characteristics a shape must have to be a parallelogram). Any regular polygon with an even number of sides must have parallel sides.  an irregular or regular shape. flat and no arcs. at least 3 sides a smiley face inside No but a regular heptagon must have equal sides. Yes, the sides of a regular polygon are all of equal length. This however is not a sufficient condition for any n-gon where n&gt;3. We must also require all angles to be equal and we must require the boundary to be simple (not self intersecting) It depends on the actual shape of that octagon. It CAN have two pairs of parallel sides. A regular octagon has 4 pairs of parallel sides.  Not only can a regular polygon have equal angles and sides, it must have them. no Improved Answer it can have two sides but it will need more then one maintain the qualities of a shape. must have more the 2 sides In short, yes. A regular pentagon is a 5 sided regular polygon. A regular polygon has all equal sides. So a regular pentagon has 5 equal sides.
